Watch conservators complete an extensive restoration of Panorama of the Monumental Grandeur of the Mississippi in Sculpture Hall. The panorama was used in the 19th century as a form of entertainment that was scrolled from one roller to another to animate 25 painted scenes. Conservation is expected to continue through July. During this treatment, visitors are encouraged to watch the conservators at work. Follow our progress at #ConservingthePanorama.

Curator Talks will explore this unique work of art and the stories it tells. Conservator Talks will examine the process and techniques involved in conserving it.
