It is too humid today to apply the topcoat, and thundershowers are expected later this evening.
Tomorrow is First Saturday at the Brooklyn Museum. My colleague, objects conservator Tina March and I will be giving a talk at 5:15 in front of the Statue of Liberty, discussing the conservation treatment. There is a very good chance that the painting will still be in progress. If you are able, please stop by.
