Back of House Storage is an important part of any large museum and careful work is done in the collections to ensure the integrity and longevity of the objects cared for in the Anchorage Museum’s collection. What the public may not know is that a variety of curators, conservators, scientists, researchers, archivists and artists utilize the museum collections regularly—and not just what is in the public eye. Join Monica Shah, Deputy Director of Conservation and Collections, to learn about the Museum collection as a whole, then follow Janet Northey, Collections Manager, as she shows some of the objects that are staff favorites, but are not currently on display. Don’t miss this opportunity to see a behind-the-scenes look at some of the other objects of the Anchorage Museum Art and Material Collections that are not display to the public. Free for members; registration required.
