The Art and Science of Conservation

Join Midwest Art Conservation Center’s Megan Emery for a behind-the-scenes peek into the world of art conservation. Conservators are the doctors of the art world–they breathe new life into dying artworks, prevent future disasters, and help protect artwork over generations. Learn what happens when a painting tears or a sculpture breaks as Emery shares insights from her career as a conservator, with a focus on her current work conserving art from WAM’s collection.
