Photo Caption: This Spectacular Virtuoso piece suffered at some point in its history and is not in condition to be exhibited. The bust is made with fragile Carrara marble lace by prominent 19th century sculptor C. Banetti, circa 1890. This is an example of a broken museum piece that will be available for adoption.

March’s topic, Broken Lightner, will give guests an in-depth and personal look at upcoming architectural, building and exhibition restoration projects, as well as artifacts in the museum’s personal collection that are in need of repair and are available for adoption.

The tour will begin in the front lobby of the museum at 10 a.m.
