Kress Anniversary Lecture SeriesFriday, May 9NoonKress Anniversary Lecture Series
The CMA is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the first Kress gift of Renaissance, Baroque and 18th-century art, which established the foundation of the Museum’s collection. The Kress Anniversary Lecture Series invites four scholars to the Museum this year to deliver talks lectures on topics that highlight our Kress Collection through their particular expertise in their field. Once a month, from May through August, an expert lecturer will broaden our understanding and appreciation of the Collection.

Kicking off the series is Dianne Modestini, conservation consultant to The Samuel H. Kress Foundation and senior research fellow and paintings conservator for the Samuel H. Kress Program at the Conservation Center of the Institute of Fine Arts in at NYU.
