Join Anne Turner Gunnison, the Alan J. Dworsky Senior Associate Conservator of Objects, and Cathy Silverman, Assistant Conservator of Objects and Furniture, in a discussion about object conservation with colleagues from the National Commission for Museums and Monuments (NCMM), Abuja, Nigeria. The exhibition Bámigbóyè: A Master Sculptor of the Yorùbá Tradition, which closes on January 8, includes many loans from the National Museum, Lagos, in a variety of media. The safe transit of these works, never before exhibited outside of Nigeria, required collaboration between conservators in Nigeria and United States. This partnership—which included a workshop in wood conservation attended by conservators from NCMM museums across Nigeria—will endure long after the exhibition has closed. Generously sponsored by the Martin A. Ryerson Lectureship Fund.

Closed captions will be available in English.
