Get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at how DAM staff prepares works of art for display. On a biweekly 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.
This program will be offered twice:
February 5, 10:30-11:30 am

Tickets are $5 (in addition to general admission). You will need to check in at a welcome desk first for a general admission ticket (general admission is free for members; prices vary for nonmembers). Please arrive a little early to check in and place your belongings in a locker (if necessary).
