Gallery Tour: A Close Look at Frame Conservation With Bill Myers, Chief Preparator at SCMA with Breana Latty (SC ‘11) and Hannah Braun (MH ‘13)
Join the Museum’s chief preparator, Bill Myers, and SCMA graduate interns, Breana Latty and Hannah Braun, for a rare gallery tour focusing on frame conservation at the Museum. Guided by experts, we will view conserved frames in the Museum’s permanent collection galleries and learn about some of the processes used on each one.
Each year, a select group of Smith and Five-College students are trained at SCMA in the techniques of frame conservation through a rigorous, in-depth introduction to conservation theory and practice. Through an emphasis on hands-on learning, program participants spend countless hours learning to conserve and reproduce historic frames.
Hear more about this unique course of study and learn about Frameworks X, an exhibition showcasing the results of this year’s frame conservation apprenticeship program on view in early May (check website for opening date).
