Teens Behind the Scenes
Join our Teens Behind the Scenes to explore the Gardner Museum’s Saint George Slaying the Dragon with a conservator, a curator, and a museum educator. Interacting with museum staff members, the teens gain new insights into curatorial practices, conservation analysis, and careful looking together.
