"CUNEO.- Volunteers use ropes to push an elephant, a 200kg-replica of one of Hannibal’s elephant, by French artist Luc Dubost, on the Cavalla Pass, in the Maira Valley, near Cuneo and the French border, on August 21, 2014, as part of an artistic project called ‘Not for highway use’. The artist and a team of volunteers started to carry the elephant from Larche in France on August 15, 2014 in a bid to ‘create a kind of a poetic remake of the strategic achievement of Hannibal’."

That time a toddler ran full speed into an oil painting: 

And when the conservator came to inspect the damage: 

I’ve never really been a fan of those baby leashes that  some people use, but this submission made me reconsider my stance. 

THIS!!!

I feel like I spend most if my time checking incident reports of visitors touching the art!

Today in the lab: Rehousing a Samuel Lawrence painting for long-term storage. This 1854 portrait (possibly Thackeray) is from the Fales Library & Special Collections.

I have an irony headache.

whenyouworkatamuseum:

When a curator casually announces in a exhibition planning meeting that the lone work by a woman of color is being scratched from the exhibition checklist for lack of name recognition. 

Why showcase a powerful artwork by an unknown living artist from an underrepresented demographic when you can put up another mediocre landscape by a well-known white guy who’s been dead for 100 years? This is actually a question? PUT ON THE KETTLE, KIDS. WE’RE GONNA BE HERE FOR A BIT.
