The Bacchus Conservation Project is a multidisciplinary and multiphase endeavor. Take a look at the slide show to see the exhibition history of the sculpture and view images of the preliminary phases of the systematic study of the classical marble sculptures. More photos will be added when the conservation project starts. Visit often to see Bacchus transform before your eyes!
The NCMA communications team is happy to work with members of the press to coordinate interviews, schedule photo shoots, and provide images. Email or call Emily Kowalski, communications manager, at (919) 664-6795.
Donations of all sizes will help this project succeed. All donors will be recognized on the web page for their support. Donors who support this project with cumulative donations of $15,000 or more will receive recognition online and onsite.
