The Yale Center for British Art, designed by Louis I. Kahn, opened to the public in 1977 and houses the largest collection of British art outside the United Kingdom. In May 2016, the Center completed the third phase of the most extensive and complex building conservation project it has undertaken to date. The project included improvements to all building systems, comprehensive repairs to the structure, and refurbishment of interior spaces. It was informed by a conservation plan that resulted from a decade-long study of the building, published in 2011; it is the first conservation plan of its kind in the United States.

Join us for this unique tour through recently renovated spaces led by Constance Clement, Deputy Director of the Yale Center for British Art, and George Knight, Principal of Knight Architecture, LLC as they give their perspective on the conservation of this iconic structure.  Click here to register now.
