About This Event

Thursday, November 5, 2020, 5:30 - 6:15 pm

See how art conservators preserve and protect the paintings in the Smithsonian American Art Museum's collection from the effects of time. Join Keara Teeter, a 2019-2020 Samuel H. Kress Fellow in Paintings Conservation, as she explains her conservation treatment of William H. Johnson's iconic Fighters for Freedom paintings. Created 75 years ago, this series celebrates prominent Black Americans who fought for civil rights.
