At the turn of the 20th century, American museums were populated with plaster casts—objects that museums considered equally instructive for connoisseurs and the public. Hannah Wirta Kinney, assistant curator of academic programs, explores how the material qualities of plaster casts became entwined with debates concerning the educational role of museums in the period. Her talk is titled "A Perfect Museum of Reproductions": Plaster Casts and Object-Based Learning.

These free programs are presented on the second Tuesday of the month in the East Gallery. Tea and cookies follow each talk.
