Join SAAM’s head of conservation, Amber Kerr, for a conservation-focused tour through the museum’s popular exhibition, Composing Color: Paintings by Alma Thomas. Kerr will discuss in-depth how Thomas achieved her unique visual effects in large-scale works, and the methods conservators use to gain insight into her working methods. Meet in F Street Lobby.
