18.05.2019 18:00
Throughout the evening we invite you to visit an exhibition “From the Past to the Future. The Conservator’s Workshop” dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the Latvian Society of Restorers, meet the conservators and together with them get acquainted with the behind the scenes of the restoration process of displayed masterpieces.

18.00-23.00

Art works which you can see displayed at the museums and exhibitions look beautiful and noble, yet often they spend a lot of time at the conservator’s workshop, but this chapter of their life gets unnoticed by the viewer. Due to the work and knowledge of the conservators, damaged or even half disintegrated items regain their old splendour and are ready to meet the viewer. Therefore, we will devote this Museum Night to the invisible heroes of the museum – conservators.
