The Farnsworth Art Museum will host an online conversation with Sarah Fisher, “Travels with Vincent: A Museum Conservator and Exhibition Adventures,” on Thursday, April 22, from 2 to 3 p.m. The cost is $10, free for members.

Fisher, who was the head of painting conservation at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., for 32 years prior to retiring to Maine, will discuss the logistics of transporting great master paintings for temporary exhibitions. A pivotal figure in the process is the courier, often a conservator from the museum that owns the painting, who supervises and accompanies the painting every step of the way during its journey. Fisher will talk about a few examples of her adventures as a courier and about the serious planning and care that goes into preparing works of art for their participation in the exhibitions.
