Gallery Talk

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street
Cambridge MA

This Valentine’s Day, four of our fellows will celebrate with a special, one-hour talk about love in works of art.

Our galleries are full of stories—this series of drop-in talks gives visitors a chance to hear the best ones! The talks highlight new works on view, take a fresh look at old favorites, investigate artists’ materials and techniques, and reveal the latest discoveries by curators, conservators, fellows, visiting artists, technologists, and other contributors.

Offered by:
Jen Thum, Inga Maren Otto Curatorial Fellow, Division of Academic and Public Programs
Lauren Hanson, Stefan Engelhorn Curatorial Fellow in the Busch-Reisinger Museum
Julie Wertz, Beal Family Postgraduate Fellow in Conservation Science, Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies
Leonie Mueller, Craigen W. Bowen Paper Conservation Fellow, Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies

Free with museum admission. Gallery talks are limited to 15 people and tickets are required. Ten minutes before each talk, tickets will become available at the admissions desk.

Please meet in the Calderwood Courtyard, in front of the digital screens between the shop and the admissions desk. Museum staff will be on hand to collect tickets.
