Making The Invisible Visible: Conservators' Discoveries About the Walters' Treasures

Date
Sunday, February 27, 2011
Time
12:00 PM–03:00 PM

Register for this event »

Two years ago, the Walters established a "behind the scenes" view into its conservation lab. Celebrating this ground-breaking endeavor, conservators will be scattered throughout the museum's collection. They will share discoveries and expose details not visible to the naked eye, thus making the invisible visible.

This gives visitors an opportunity to speak directly with conservators, witness conservation techniques, and examine materials used in conservation processes. We are indebted to Eleanor McMillan for her generosity in making the conservation window possible. Ms. McMillan began her career with an apprenticeship in the Walters lab and is conservator emeritus of the Smithsonian Conservation Analytical Laboratory.

Pre-registration is recommended.
