Film Description:Lynn Grant, Head Conservator
In the Summer of 2018, the Lower Egyptian (Sphinx) Gallery was closed to the public. Why? What’s been happening with all the stuff in there since then? Head Conservator Lynn Grant will talk about the monumental – in every sense of the word – task of conserving the large architectural pieces for installation in the renewed Egyptian Galleries. See what’s been holding up the Sphinx for the last 92 years and learn how we’ll be dealing with the objects too large to leave the building.
