What’s in a Frame?

12PM – 1PM
SPENCER MUSEUM OF ART, DOLPH SIMONS FAMILY GALLERY, 316

Join resident frame specialist and Exhibition Technician Dan Coester to learn how frames both protect paintings and shape our experiences with works of art. This behind-the-frames discussion focuses on significant restoration work completed for paintings on view in Civic Leader and Art Collector: Sallie Casey Thayer and an Art Museum for KU and includes examples of the restoration process and frames awaiting treatment.
