Behind the SEEN: The power of X-Radiography
Museum staff share stories related to objects in the musuem’s permanent collection.

Objects conservator, Joe Rogers and paintings conservator Mary Schafer discuss the power of X-radiography—more commonly known as X-rays—to reveal what’s hidden and assist in the conservation and preservation of art.
