The American Institute for Conservation-sponsored workshop "Learning
to Look: Early Photographs" will take place at the J. Paul Getty
Museum on Thursday February 26, 2009 from 11am until noon as part of
the programming of the 97th annual meeting of the College Art

First organized in 2002,"Learning to Look" workshops bring together
art historians, conservators, and artists to discuss works of art.
Led by a curator and a conservator, each workshop focuses on the
material aspects of one type of object. Past workshops have focused
on Classical art, Abstract Expressionist paintings, and Rodin

 This year's workshop will meet in the galleries of the J. Paul
Getty Museum exhibit "Dialogue Among Giants: Carleton Watkins and
the Rise of Photography in California" and will be led by Weston
Naef, Senior Curator of Photographs, who organized the exhibit and
Sarah Freeman, a J. Paul Getty Museum conservator who specializes in
photographic materials.

There is no charge for this event and one does not have to be
registered for the College Art Association meeting to attend.
Participation is limited to 12 people and pre-registration is
required. If you would like to register, please contact Rebecca
