DAM curators and conservators do a show-and-tell of recent gifts to the collection and end-of-year acquisitions. Get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at how DAM staff assess, handle and treat objects from the textile art collection. Learn about tools, processes and equipment; special conditions necessary for fragile objects; and the general “hows and whys” of conservation.

Tickets are $5 (in addition to general admission). You will need to check in at a welcome desk first for a general admission ticket (general admission is free for members; prices vary for nonmembers). Please arrive a little early to check in and place your belongings in a locker (if necessary).
