BGC alums were treated to a curator-led tour of the Salvaging the Past: Georges Hoentschel and French Decorative Arts from The Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibition, the main gallery show that opened last week.


Co-curators Ulrich Leben and Deborah Krohn led a lively discussion and walk-through for former students,
and spoke about both the origin and process for this project and many of the objects researched by the faculty and students. The Hoentschel project started as a class offering and evolved into a Main Gallery exhibit. Students worked on every aspect of the research and planning, including some of the work for the catalogue. The exhibition will be up in our gallery until August 4th.
