The event provided an opportunity for the community to learn more about NMAAHC and the bank's Arts Conservation Project, which gave the museum a grant for the conservation of nine paintings that are critical to the formation of its Visual Arts Gallery inaugural exhibition. The new Smithsonian museum is scheduled to open in Washington, D.C. in 2016.
