HYDE PARK — Artistic masterpieces are damaged are often taken out of galleries and museums considered worthless. The at the University of Chicago will explain on April 23 what happens to “salvage art.”
Elka Krajewska, founder of the Salvage Art Institute, will be joined by a panel of art experts to talk about art that’s somehow lost its value at 5 p.m. for the opening of the “No Longer Art” exhibit at the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society, 5701 S. Woodlawn Ave.
“Once 'total loss' status has been declared and indemnification has been paid, salvage art is considered officially devoid of value,” according to organizers. “Its objects are cast into art’s nether world, no longer alive for the market, gallery or museum system, but often still relatively intact.”
The event is free and open to the public.
The exhibition will run through June 26.
