Wietske Donkersloot leaves CODART
As she rounds off the website project that she ran for the past year and a half, Wietske Donkersloot is leaving CODART. We would like to thank her for all the work she has done for CODART. Wietske has been an important driving force behind many developments within CODART, Together with Gary Schwartz and the website committee she initiated profound renewals of our website www.codart.nl. As the project manager of the website project she gave a considerable new impulse to CODART’s most important means of communication. With the completion of the project, she leaves a very special legacy, which contributes vastly to the face of CODART.
We wish her all the best in her work as a Mellon Fellow at the Netherlands Institute for Art History (RKD) and the Mauritshuis.
