Get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at how DAM staff prepares works of art for display. For two hours on a weekly basis, visitors can observe and interact with conservation and other staff as they assess, handle, and treat objects from the textile art collection. Learn about tools, processes, and equipment; special conditions necessary for fragile objects; and the general “hows and whys” of conservation.
