5:00 PM-6:00 PM

Lunder Center at Stone Hill Galleries

Nora Rosengarten, the Judith M. Lenett Memorial Fellow, Williams College MA Class of 2019, discusses the subject of her yearlong conservation fellowship at the Williamstown Art Conservation Center: two early-nineteenth century globes produced by Josiah Loring in Boston, Massachusetts from the collection of Williams’s Chapin Library. Among the first made in America, Loring’s globes offer insight into nineteenth-century conceptions of empire, outer space, and travel, while commanding aesthetic fascination. Rosengarten presents her research and articulates the conservation plan she undertook. A reception follows the talk.
