We are delighted to launch the new Center for Art Collections Ethics (ACE) website, in partnership with the College of Arts, Humanities, & Social Sciences’ (CAHSS) digital marketing team. With this redesign, the ACE website allows visitors to not only read our news blog, but also learn more about upcoming events, training programs and other ways to stay involved with ACE.

“We now have a far more robust platform as a social media hub, where visitors can read blog entries about current news stories, and learn about past and upcoming events and training programs,” said Elizabeth Campbell, PhD, ACE director and a historian of Nazi art looting. “The platform is visually appealing, effectively displays the artworks we’re discussing and shows off photos from our past events.”

The website launches just as ACE is announcing a series of events. On Thursday, February 18, 2021, Campbell is offering a free webinar, “Why the Nazis Looted Art and Why it Still Matters.” It will be held 6–7:30 p.m. MST and is co-sponsored by DU’s Holocaust Awareness Institute, the Holocaust Museum Houston and the Program in Jewish Studies at Rice University. Registration is still open on the event page.

ACE also announces plans for a virtual training program in August 2021 on the fundamentals of Nazi-era art provenance research. “We are excited to provide provenance research training amid the pandemic,” Campbell said. “We are seizing the opportunity to innovate, and our virtual platform will enable us to welcome a far wider group of participants, potentially from across the globe.”

We are also pleased to offer a series of blog posts on provenance research being carried out at the University of Denver by our own graduate students. Watch our News page, or subscribe to our newsletter for blog and event updates. Subscribe or update your subscription by filling out our form.
