About The Event

How does the museum make decisions about framing works of art, specifically textiles? In this program, frame technician Dave Piurek and conservator of textiles Robin Hanson discuss the recent textile conservation framing projects for Marguerite Zorach’s The Family (In Memory of a Summer in the White Mountains) and the German embroidered altar cloth Christ Gathering Roses. These two projects resulted in two very different framing solutions. This event is for the Textile Art Alliance.
