ARTful Evenings: The Conservation of Paintings: Historical and Technical Discoveries
August 19 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Is it true that a painting conservator is also a detective? In Barry Bauman’s 46 years of experience treating and analyzing damaged paintings there have been some stand out moments for him. In this talk, Bauman will discuss the times that his practice led him to discover a previously hidden piece of art history. Join Barry Bauman, a former associate conservator of paintings at the Art Institute of Chicago and founder of Conservation Ventures, a company specializing in presentations and CAP grants for museums’ long-range collection care, as he speaks about his experience as a conservator.
