The community lost a bright light recently. For years, Dirk Armstrong worked as the assistant curator at the Dalí museum. He brought my dad, Glenn Stevenson, in for art handling and framing over the years. Armstrong spent his life working in art curation, archives, conservation, installation and transportation of special works. He also gave one hell of a lecture on preparator work...not always the most riveting topic to the general public. When he wasn’t handling the surrealist masterworks, he was funny, smart, and super knowledgeable about music and books. I was lucky to work with Dirk as an art handler on his team in the last few years as well. As a handler, I learned so much. I wish I had gotten to learn more. He passed away unexpectedly in the spring.
