NC Museum of Art Series Continues Oct. 21
Meredith College is hosting a series of events in 2009-10 through a partnership with the North Carolina Museum of Art while the museum is closed for renovation. The next event is October 21.
The lecture series began in September and runs through March. Presented by the North Carolina Museum of Art and the Center for Women in the Arts at Meredith College, this nine-part series is designed to reacquaint people with the museum’s collection and introduce new works of art that will be seen for the first time when the new building opens.
The October 21 lecture will be held at 10 a.m. in Jones Auditorium. The lecture will focus on the conservation of the NC Museum of Art collection. Working behind the scenes for the past several years, the museum’s Conservation Team has been quietly restoring the permanent collection ensuring it is looking its best for the opening of the new gallery building. Bill Brown, Chief Conservator, will share his experiences during this important time in the history of the museum. Discussion will include the restoration of important masterpieces familiar to visitors, as well as treasures from art storage which have rarely been on view.
Doors open 30 minutes prior to each lecture. Lectures are free and open to the public.
Upcoming events in the series include the following:
•November 4, at 7:15 p.m: 17th-Century Dutch and Flemish Paintings at the North Carolina Museum of Art
•January 13 at 10 a.m.: Installing the New Galleries
