Collect, Care, Conserve, Curate: The Life of the Art Object

This exhibition encompasses objects ranging from 1st century Roman glass through 20th century sculpture, including a 17th century Dutch portrait painting on panel with a hidden image. The majority of the selected objects have never been publicly on view, and present a rare opportunity for visitors to The Fralin. This multi-cultural exhibition is designed to encourage museum goers to participate in the methodology of visual analysis in the detection of materials, fabrication, deterioration, damage, and histories of previous repairs in order to discover the story of the object.
