Gallery Talk

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street
Cambridge MA

Danielle Carrabino, associate research curator of European art, will give today’s gallery talk. This talk is one of the many events this year that commemorate the 500th anniversary of the canon’s house of the Church of San Biagio in Montepulciano, Italy, on which our Calderwood Courtyard was modeled.

Free with museums admission. This talk is limited to 15 people and tickets are required. Ten minutes before the 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. Museums staff will be on hand to collect tickets.

Gallery talks are offered by curators, conservators, fellows, and other museums staff; they focus on aspects of the installation process, exploring both intellectual and more practical considerations. Museums staff will, for example, tease out arguments at play in the galleries, discuss conservation treatments, look closely at specific collections, or draw connections between works of art throughout the museums.
