Art Conservation with Tom Learner at Scripps College on February 8, 2011

How do you keep an Eve Hesse latex sculpture safely stored in a gallery or museum collection? What do you do when the light bulbs used in a James Turrell light sculpture are no longer being produced? Do you ever wonder? I’m hoping topics like these will be discussed at the next Tuesday Noon Academy at Scripps College.

I will tell you from experience that it is a packed room at these events so get there early. The desserts are insanely good; get one of those early, too.


“Art Conservation Lecture

Bring your lunch and join the Williamson Gallery in the Hampton Room (Malott Commons, 2nd floor) for “The Conservation of Modern and Contemporary Art: Issues, Challenges, and Current Research at the Getty Conservation Institute” presented by Thomas J. S. Learner, senior scientist at The Getty Conservation Institute. This lecture is organized in conjunction with the new art major in art conservation. Doors open at 11:45 a.m. Lunches can be purchased from Malott Commons. Dessert and coffee will be served.”
