Learn about work being undertaken by Julia Brennan, textile conservator, consultant to the Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles, and owner of Caring for Textiles in Washington, D.C. to study and preserve Thai textiles. Following the lecture, see a textile banner from the Walters’ Doris Duke Collection of Southeast Asian Art that is over 66 feet in length and has never been on view. Today, thanks in part to the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Walters has one of the largest and finest collections of Thai bronzes, paintings, and objects outside of Thailand.
