Caitlin Sofield

Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation
Student
Newark, DE
Caitlin graduated from Ithaca College in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts in Italian Studies, and a double minor in Art History and Classical Studies. While studying at Ithaca’s London Center, she interned at the Leighton House Museum. After graduation, she returned home to New Hampshire to complete chemistry and studio art courses while working as a veterinary technician at her father’s practice. These courses included a 10-week Woodworking Intensive at the Homestead Woodworking School in Newmarket, NH, and a 12-week Furniture Intensive at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, ME. Her first pre-program internship was with Gordon Hanlon in the Furniture and Frames lab at the MFA, Boston. While there she participated in gallery installations, visitor impact surveys, and treated a 17th-century English Mirror Frame, a 19th-century American Parlor Cabinet, and an 18th-century French string instrument. She next spent two seasons with Jeff Moore at the Preservation Society of Newport County participating in the treatment of Chinese Lacquer Panels and outdoor sculpture at the Elms mansion. Her final pre-program internship was with the Collection Care Branch of the National Park Service where she worked on phonographs and toy trains from Thomas Edison’s house and a sewing box from the Adams National Historic Park, participated in graffiti reduction on an island in Boston Harbor, and treated the interior woodwork of Sagamore Hill, the home of Teddy Roosevelt. Caitlin loves to travel and spend time outdoors, whether at a Red Sox game, hiking with her dogs, rowing, or reading in a sunny spot.
