Event Description
What makes an art museum tick? How does the Spencer Museum of Art at KU do its job? Join Dr. Susan Earle, curator at the Spencer Museum, for a look behind the scenes at the inner workings of a renowned campus art museum. Topics will include how exhibitions are organized, how we decide which objects to display in the galleries, treating objects that need repair, working with living artists, and proposing works of art for purchase. This session takes place “behind” and in front of original works of art in the Spencer Museum.
