Elizabeth Rudy, the Carl A. Weyerhaeuser Associate Curator of Prints, will give today’s gallery talk, which relates to the exhibition Drawing: The Invention of a Modern Medium, on view from January 21 through May 7, 2017.
Gallery talks are offered by curators, conservators, fellows, and other museums staff; they focus on aspects of the installation process, exploring both intellectual and more practical considerations. Museums staff will, for example, tease out arguments at play in the galleries, discuss conservation treatments, look closely at specific collections, or draw connections between works of art throughout the museums.
