2021 Summer Sizzlers – When Art Needs Some TLC

August 10, 2021


Since 2017, Nicky DeFreece Emery has been one of several conservators charged with maintaining and conserving pieces in the City of Dallas’s public art collection. The City of Dallas’s Public Art Program currently has over 300 pieces in the collection, ranging in all manner of media, location, and complexity from monumental bronzes such as Henry Moore’s 1978 The Dallas Piece at City Hall Plaza to the six stately concrete sculptures at Fair Park’s Esplanade constructed in 1936 for the Texas Centennial. Each piece is unique and challenging in its own way. Join us as Nicky discusses the conservation of some of these wonderful pieces of public art.


This lecture will be presented virtually. The link will be emailed on the morning of the session.
