Art for the Ages:

Conservation at DAI

On View June 25–September 11, 2022
Member Preview Days: June 23 & 24
Member Preview Reception: June 23

Art for the Ages is a DAI-exclusive exhibition that takes a close look at how conservation protects art for future generations.

It lifts the curtain on work, often hidden from public view but essential to the DAI’s mission, that integrates cutting-edge science and exacting craft. Presenting rarely displayed works, as well as favorites seen in a new light, this exhibition includes a variety of objects made from many different materials and representing diverse time periods and cultures.

It highlights how artworks, like humans, are material things vulnerable to wear and accidents across the course of time. Their life is not guaranteed, but conservation science is constantly developing new means to preserve them and, in turn, enrich our lives and those that follow after us.
