Art Conservation Department Opens Doors to Public

Posted: October 25, 2017

On Friday, October 27, the campus and community can glimpse how Buffalo State art conservators revive a damaged painting, watermarked book, or broken sculpture during the Patricia H. and Richard E. Garman Art Conservation Fall Open House. The free event will be held from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on the second floor of Rockwell Hall.

The open house provides the only opportunity during the year in which the public can see inside the Garman Art Conservation Department without an appointment.

During two identical sessions in the afternoon and evening, students and faculty will explain what they’ve been conserving over the past year and give tours of the department's studios and labs.

“This is the time when our students can show off the amazing projects they’ve undertaken for months or even years,” said Patrick Ravines, associate professor and director of art conservation. “We welcome members of the public to this open house so they can meet us and leave with a better understanding of the important work conservators do on a daily basis.” 

For more information, call (716) 878-5025 or visit the department website.
