Recent Art Center Conservation Projects

Have you ever wondered what happens when artwork is damaged? How does the passage of time affect sculpture? What issues are considered when conserving priceless artworks? Did you know that artist David Smith sometimes did his own touch-up painting or that Henry Moore's bronze sculpture was once rolled down a hill?

Learn about these facts and more in this lecture by art conservator Nicole Grabow, who has worked to repair and conserve several Art Center sculptures in the last year. She'll share images, research, and stories in this fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse of art conservation at the Des Moines Art Center.

This program is part of the Art Center's Minefields of the Museum series.
