This first installment of the fifteen-part Whitney Stories video series features Carol Mancusi-Ungaro, the Whitney’s Associate Director for Conservation and Research.
When Matthew Skopek began working as a conservator at the Whitney in 2006, Franz Kline’s Mahoning (1956) was installed as part of a permanent collection exhibition at the Museum. Ever since viewing the painting seven years ago, he wanted to restore it.
Whitney Stories presents a behind-the-scenes look at the Museum’s ongoing transformation.
