Since the mid-1970s, the MFA has acquired artisan furniture to be used as gallery seating (known as the Please Be Seated Collection), each one distinctive and with a story of its own. Twelve of these pieces, including this playful bench, are on view in “Tender Loving Care: Contemporary Art from the Collection.” Learn how conservators care for this unique group of gallery furniture, and while enjoying the talk, please be seated!

With Christine Storti, head of Furniture and Frame Conservation.

Free with general admission. No advance registration or tickets required. Talks meet at Sharf Visitor Center.
