How do we care for and keep our collections for generations to come? Experience a rare opportunity to go behind the scenes of a museum object and witness the restoration of one of the most significant items in the Museum’s collection: Samuel Bell Waugh’s massive painting The Bay and Harbor of New York. This depiction of New York’s busy waterfront shows a group of Irish immigrants disembarking at Castle Garden, a massive registration hall opened in 1855. Preview the exhibition with CBS’s Dave Carlin, and stop by on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays to see conservator Gary McGowan at work. While you’re here, look closely at the process, methods, and tools it takes to preserve items, why we make the choices we do, and explore more moments of arrival.
