revamped website

the center for art conservation has a newly tweaked website. hope you like! next on the list is attracting more folks to it...any suggestions? let me know. google apps finally got around to making their pages easily editable, and this i could do myself well enough to feel i don't have to make an entirely new and flashy site, at least for a while. gotta watch the funds you know. stay tuned for a blog dedicated solely to conservation, and perhaps a photo tour of the new studio setup...once it's finally done.
