Conserving the Mississippi Panorama

This summer, visitors to the Saint Louis Art Museum are invited to experience something out of the ordinary. In Sculpture Hall, art conservators will be treating a work from our collection, Panorama of the Monumental Grandeur of the Mississippi Valley. During this process, Museum visitors have the unique opportunity to observe and interact with the conservation team while they work.
