Friday, Oct. 18, 2019 – Friday, Oct. 18, 2019

Prior experience in conservation studios is requirement of art conservation graduate programs. The Menil Drawing Institute serves as a training ground to prepare future paper conservators. For this talk, Paper Conservator Jan Burandt and two of her aspiring conservators will explain how to examine a drawing and document its condition.

*This talk will take place in the main museum’s library. Space is limited and RSVPs are required
