Join Yale University’s conservation community for an afternoon of tours followed by pizza and beer. Visitors will tour Yale’s newly renovated Collection Studies Center at Yale West Campus for a behind the scenes look at the facilities. They will join conservators from the Yale University Art Gallery and the Yale Center for British Art in the shared object, painting, and paper treatment lab to see ongoing conservation projects, including the treatment of a twelve foot in diameter ceiling painting, an altarpiece by Piero di Cosimo, a Roman painted wood shield, and more. Conservation Scientists from the Aging Diagnostics and Technical Studies Labs in the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage will lead a tour of their spaces and discuss the research projects underway. The will will also include the IPCH Digitization Lab, a shared imaging space. Curators from the Art Gallery will be on hand to showcase the American Furniture Study Center and the Margaret and Angus Wurtele Study Center, two new open-access storage facilities. Touring the over 500,000 square foot facility will work up an appetite: eat famous New Haven style apizza and drink locally brewed beers at the reception after the tours while a local historian shares the history of New Haven pizza.
