See the current case displays exploring the use of blue colorants and hear about some of the projects that are visible through glass windows. Get a sense of the range of activities, from mountmaking and cleaning, to repair and treatments, in the Henderson Conservation Learning Center, a space dedicated to inquiry, learning, and dialogue between visitors and conservators.
