Curator One-on-One

Curator One-on-One is a fun and educational opportunity for members at the Premium, Friend and Patron levels. Bring objects from your collection and meet with a curator, who will identify, date, attribute, and give historical and stylistic knowledge about the objects. If you have questions about the care of your objects, additional information can be provided from a conservator.
