Objects conservator Casey Mallinckrodt leads a discussion about conservation practices outdoors focused on the Wadsworth’s project to clean and restore the statue of Nathan Hale that has stood on the museum’s Main Street lawn since 1894. Availability is limited and advance registration is required. Resistration link available soon.
Talk begins outside the museum’s 600 Main Street Entrance. Visitors are required to wear a face mask and observe a safe social distance of 6 feet from others while on the grounds of the Wadsworth.
