**REGISTRATION FOR THIS TOUR IS FULL** (4/25/2014)

The National Gallery of Art was conceived and given to the people of the United States by Andrew W. Mellon, a financier and art collector from Pittsburgh who came to Washington in 1921 to serve as secretary of the treasury. Mellon’s art collection and a sizeable endowment established the NGA in 1937.  The Gallery’s principal duty is to keep its collections and the facilities that house them intact and in optimum condition for future generations. To carry out this responsibility, the Gallery maintains effective programs of security, environmental control, buildings maintenance, and conservation. To support the vast and varied collections, Conservation labs for Paper, Photographs, and Textiles were established as part of the National Gallery of Art. Attendees for this tour will be taken on a behind the scenes tour to view the Paper, Photograph, and Textile conservation labs.  This includes Conservation labs focusing on paintings, works on paper, photographs, textiles, and sculpture.
