December 20 (12:00-1:00 p.m.) The Five Senses
In 2014, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art organized an exhibition called “The Five Senses.” It was a simple premise, 5 senses, 5 works of art, but behind the scenes couriers, conservators, curators and a determined registrar worked behind-the-scenes to pull it together. It included loans from major museums and private foundations comprising box fans, delicate computer and sound technology, horse stall mats, spices, and 7000 oranges.   Pat Evans, who was Registrar at SMoCA, now the Registrar at Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West, will talk about how it all worked.
