The Walters recently received a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to perform the cleaning and treatment of several objects from the Doris Duke Collection of Southeast Asian Art. This collection, comprised of a variety of beautiful and unique pieces, has been in storage for some time, and many pieces require treatment. Visitors can interact with conservators as they work on this collection in the Special Exhibition Gallery.
Learn more about this project in our blog post, Revealing the Splendor of Gilded Lacquer.
Visitors can also visit our Conservation Window, open Fridays to Sundays.
