Thursday, April 29
Textile Conservation Lab Online Salon
12 PM - 12:30 PM
Please join us on Thursday, April 29 at noon for the Textile Conservation Lab’s first virtual event. Our expert conservators will provide a behind the scenes look at the ongoing work of the lab, share the exciting plans for the year ahead, and discuss some of the unique projects recently restored, including the Barberini Life of Christ set and our ongoing work on The Acts of the Apostles, all of which have been possible through the generous support of our donors.
The Textile Conservation Lab was established in 1981 by The Very Reverend James Parks Morton as a way to conserve the tapestries that were already in the Cathedral’s care as well as serve the community by training future conservators. From the start, the Lab began taking in work from other museums and over the years has consistently grown in reputation in the conversation community. The Lab continues to advance one of its core goals—to train new conservators—with its robust internship program.
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, April 29! To RSVP, or if you have any questions, please email Jessica Laufer from the Development team at [email protected].
