Ernest Thompson Seton Exhibit Update

Hunting down and eliminating dust


The ever-changing Seton Gallery is now showing additional ETS works in open storage display drawers. Museums generally have more stuff than can be shown on the walls. The rest goes into storage. The solution: store artwork where it can be seen by the public. Adjoining the Gallery is the Academy's Conference Room with two storage units with 54 drawers showing ETS drawings and paintings. Most but not all of the drawers show labeled artwork. The ones not currently used will show new work in the future. Here museum consultant Amy Flowers searches for errant flakes and dust motes. 

The Gallery is open the second and fourth Wednesday of each month and by appointment. Free admission.
