Homeschool Workshop: Art Detectives! 10-12

A work of art can hold lots of secrets; secrets that have remained hidden for centuries! Discover what hidden stories are revealed when conservators clean, x-ray and analyze works of art.  Students will uncover the mysteries and secrets of objects from the Walters' collection and get a look at how art and science connect in the Walters' conservation lab.

Explore the Walters through this workshop designed exclusively for homeschool students ages 5-12. Participants enjoy an introduction to the museum, a guided tour, studio activity and post-visit materials.

Omnivorous Collectors

Date: 10/26/14

Time: 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM

Like J.P. Morgan and other members of the Gilded Age elite, Henry Walters was an “omnivorous” collector of art. To mark the opening of From Rye to Raphael: The Walters Story, Walters curator Jo Briggs, Christine Nelson, Drue Heinz Curator of Literary and Historical Manuscripts at the Morgan Library and Museum, and John Ott, associate professor at James Madison University consider how discriminating purchasing cemented social relationships at the turn of the century.
