Explore a display about early 20th-century excavations of the ancient city of Samaria-Sebaste, with curatorial fellow Caitlin Clerkin. You’ll learn how photographs and payroll records help us rewrite the history of archaeology—one that acknowledges the people behind the excavation of the objects on display.
Our galleries are full of stories—this series of talks gives visitors a chance to hear the best ones! The talks highlight new works on view, take a fresh look at old favorites, investigate artists’ materials and techniques, and reveal the latest discoveries by curators, conservators, fellows, visiting artists, technologists, and other contributors.
