Up Close: Rainbow Bright

Discover stories, objects, and ideas from beyond the galleries of the Royal Alberta Museum.

Introducing Up Close: stories, objects, and ideas from beyond the galleries of the Royal Alberta Museum. Meet museum experts, hear about research and collections projects, and get up close with history!

From quilled rifle cases to handmade protest signs, RAM has plenty of colourful objects under their care. But how does the museum preserve colour of objects so they last for generations? It’s a balance of light, material, and very careful calculations.

Take a deep dive with Carmen Li, Head of Conservation, to look at museum objects from a totally different perspective, learn how light and colour affect each other, and get a virtual behind-the-scenes look at the analytical techniques we use on objects.

Up Close virtual talks are free to attend. Reserve your spot now!
