How can a painting be lost? What does it take for it to return home? Discover the surprising backstory of Sea, Cranes and Peaches, the monumental Korean screen painting on view in Art for the Ages: Conservation at DAI. Dr. Peter L. Doebler, Kettering Curator of Asian Art, will discuss how the painting came to the museum in 1941, was progressively marginalized, and only recently received new life through fresh research and extensive conservation.

Roll up your sleeves and join us for these hands-on ceramic workshops centered around Kintsugi, the art of repairing broken pottery. Participants will learn how to holistically approach damage as part of the lifespan of objects and celebrate their repair.
