The Stuff You Do Not See: Conservation for a Renovated Museum
See Event Description
In the Summer of 2018, the Egypt (Sphinx) Gallery was closed to the public. Why? What’s been happening with all the stuff in there since then? Lynn Grant, Penn Museum Head Conservator, talks about the monumental—in every sense of the word—task of conserving the large architectural pieces for installation in the upcoming Ancient Egypt & Nubia Galleries. See what’s been holding up the Sphinx for the last 92 years and learn how we’ll be dealing with objects too large to leave the building.
