On Friday February 24, 2012, 1-2pm, a workshop on Cor-Ten steel sculpture will take place at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90036. The workshop will be led by John Hirx, Head Objects Conservator at Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Andrea Kirsh, an independent curator and art historian specializing in modern and contemporary art.
The workshop is part of the “Learning to Look” workshop series organized by the American Institute for Conservation in conjunction with the annual meeting of the College Art Association.
First organized in 2002, “Learning to Look” workshops bring together art historians, conservators, and artists to discuss works of art. Led by a curator and a conservator, each workshop focuses on the material aspects of one type of object. Past workshops have focused on Classical art, Abstract Expressionist paintings, Rodin sculptures, and early photographs.
The workshop will be limited to twelve participants. Pre-registration is required.
