Conserving the Mississippi Panorama

During the summer of 2019, visitors to the Saint Louis Art Museum were invited to experience something out of the ordinary. In Sculpture Hall, art conservators treated a work from our collection, Panorama of the Monumental Grandeur of the Mississippi Valley. During this process, Museum visitors had the unique opportunity to observe and interact with the conservation team while they worked.
