Member Noontime Talk on Flavin & Conservation

Join Curatorial Assistant Haley Berkman and Assistant Objects Conservator Kari Dodson for a tour of the Dan Flavin Installation at Richmond Hall. The interior and exterior of Richmond Hall are the permanent home to fluorescent light sculptures by artist Dan Flavin. Curatorial decisions of art acquisition, commission, and installation shaped Richmond Hall as we know it today, and conservation decisions strive to maintain the fidelity of Flavin’s artworks, specifically against the challenges presented by Houston’s punishing summer sun and the obsolescence of fluorescent lamp manufacture.

Held every Friday for a small group, Member Noontime Talks make exhibitions more intimate and reveal the collection as never before. To sign up, please RSVP to membership@menil.org. If you are not currently a Menil Member, you can learn more and join here.
