Ever wondered how scrolls are taken down? Here’s a behind-the-scenes peek at what museums do!
We took down our showcase of classic Chinese scrolls reproductions (no, they’re not old at all!). On display in the gallery were 18 paintings from the Song (690-1279), Ming (1368- 1644), and Qing (1644-1912) Dynasties and show three main painting styles: landscapes, close-ups on nature, and narrative paintings.
Taking down a scroll is easier with 2-3 people working together (and a ladder!) but we’re physical distancing due to the COVID pandemic.
