Art Break: Make It Speak: Stories from the Vault« Back to Events
Selected Fridays, 12:00 p.m.
Free with membership or Museum admission
Drop in to one of our lunchtime Art Breaks! These informal gallery talks and presentations both inform and engage you in dialogue with our curatorial and education staff, docents, or special guests.
Make It Speak: Stories from the Vault
As we undertake the processes of inventory, packing, and moving before our expansion, staff members are making new discoveries about the Museum’s collection every day. In this series, curators, educators, and special guests tell tales of connoisseurship, conservation, collecting, and conundrums as we delve into the recesses of our storage vaults.
How to Dust Your Artwork: Demonstration and Discussion
At home, we dust to keep furniture looking fresh. At the Museum, we dust not only to keep our galleries clean, but also because dust can permanently damage artworks from the outside in. Join conservator David Goist for a demonstration and discussion on best practices in protecting your artworks from the damaging effects of dust.
