Art graces the public square, city street or campus garden. Years go by, and then problems develop. How have major artworks that achieve landmark status been conserved for coming generations? Thomas Learner, senior scientist at the Getty Conservation Institute in Los Angeles, directs the Getty program engaged in resolving conservation challenges for modern and contemporary art worldwide. He gave his expert opinion to the Ulrich as we considered the best course to conserve the Joan Miró mural, as one example of his professional enterprise. Learner shared his experience and insider’s view on conservation projects of staggering importance and magnitude around the globe.

Learner spoke to the Ulrich Salon Circle at 6 p.m. Thursday, October 6, 2011, at the Ulrich Museum of Art at Wichita State University.
