Come to the CMA for a quick bite of art history. Every first Tuesday of each month, join curators, conservators, scholars, and other museum staff for 30-minute talks on objects currently on display in the museum galleries. 

Join CMA associate conservator Sara Ribbans as she discusses the structure of Japanese folding screens in relation to the ongoing treatment of a 17th-century example. Ribbans will share details of how folding screens are produced, clues to the history of when the screen was last remounted, and the challenges of treating and remounting folding screen paintings.
