About The Event

Have you ever wondered how artworks in the CMA’s collection are cared for? Join CMA conservators and technicians for guided tours of the galleries. Investigate artists’ materials and processes and learn about how the museum preserves artworks for the future. 

In this Material Matters talk, Moyna Stanton, paper conservator at the Cleveland Museum of Art, is joined by Andria Hoy, archivist for the Cleveland Orchestra and Severance Music Center. Hoy provides an overview of how the orchestra acquired Mahler’s manuscript, and together they discuss the actual making of it. Hoy brings her specialization as a musician and archivist, while Stanton brings her knowledge of papermaking, writing tools, and media.
