Panel Discussion | How to Move a Museum: The Fine Art of Deinstallation


Panel Discussion | How to Move a Museum: The Fine Art of Deinstallation

Thursday, April 8, 2021 @ 5:30 pm

For decades, objects have filled the Art Museum’s galleries. Many hang on walls or sit in display cases, while others, like the mosaics from Antioch, are embedded into the floors and walls, intended never to be moved. That is, until now. Join us as we reveal how we move parts of the collections in advance of the new building. Participants include Chris Newth, associate director for collections and exhibitions, and Bart Devolder, chief conservator, Carol Rossi, associate registrar, and Gloria Lu, category manager, procurement services.
