If These Walls Could Talk . . .
Thursday, October 28
Go back in time, behind the scenes, and into the walls of the Taft Museum of Art. Join project experts and historic preservation consultants to explore the architectural history of the Taft’s 200-year-old house. They’ll explain the testing, probes, and investigations conducted to plan the building’s once-in-a-generation rehabilitation. This is the first of a three-part series of talks highlighting different facets of the Taft’s Bicentennial Infrastructure Project before, during, and after completion.
Virtual Public Tours | In a New Light
Enjoy docent-led tours of the Taft’s special bicentennial exhibition, In a New Light: Treasures from the Taft.
Self-Guided Virtual Tour | Taft Historic House
While the Taft historic house undergoes a major rehabilitation project, making it temporarily inaccessible to the public, audiences can explore the historic house and its esteemed artworks as they appeared prior to renovation efforts. Several of the works displayed in the virtual tour are also now on view within In a New Light: Treasures from the Taft and Borrowed Gems from the Taft Museum of Art.
