While the Art Institute of Chicago's ancient and Byzantine collection was off view during the construction of the Mary and Michael Jaharis Galleries of Greek, Roman, and Byzantine Art, numerous objects underwent extensive conservation. The following video chronicles the conservation processes used to prepare several ancient and Byzantine artworks for display, including the restoration of a Greek vase, the cleaning of Roman and Byzantine mosaics, the metallurgical analysis of a bronze sculpture, and the laser-cleaning of a marble statue. This video was produced with the generous support of a Long Range Fund grant provided by the Community Associates of the Art Institute of Chicago. It was created for LaunchPad, a program of digital interpretive materials that supplement the viewing of works of art on display in the Art Institute of Chicago's galleries.

Francisco Benjamín López Toledo (Juchitán, Oaxaca,17 de julio de 1940) es un pintor mejicano. La experiencia artística de Francisco Toledo nunca ha estado exenta de prolíficos periodos. Desde muy joven, su interés y gusto por el dibujo y la pintura lo llevaron a explorar lo que su entorno le tendía en mano. Con compañías que han sido su complemento, Francisco Toledo ha desarrollado su arte, uno muy suyo, que ha sufrido una transformación exponencial; su arte que es pulimento de su talento rebosante, enérgico. Su padre, que fue uno de los cómplices, le cedió las paredes de la casa para que experimentara con el color. A los once años, Toledo estaba lo bastante motivado para ir a la Escuela de Diseños y Artesanías en el D.F. a continuar con una formación formal, complementaria de sus primeras experiencias con el grabado en un taller oaxaqueño.

Francisco Zuniga: A collection of 160 works (HD)
Description: "Internationally acclaimed sculptor and printmaker Francisco Zuñiga was born in Guadalupe, Costa Rica on December 26, 1912. The son of a religious sculptor and woodcarver, he studied with his father early on before turning to formal education. His attempt to study classical art in Europe was thwarted by the Spanish Civil War, and he traveled instead to Mexico. He studied drawing, stone sculpture, and engraving at the School of Fine Arts in San Jose. Later, in 1936, he studied stone carving at La Esmeralda in Mexico City. He was appointed to the faculty of La Esmeralda where he remained until his retirement in 1970. Zuniga's art reflects a love and respect for Central American people and traditions, and illustrates the beginning of the powerful influence of traditional Mexican and Latin culture on the world of art.
In 1972, he created his first lithograph. As a complement to his emotionally powerful sculpture, Zuniga's prints articulate the sensitivity and sensuality of the human figure- in particular, the strong, powerful figure of the matriarchal female of his cultural heritage.,
Zuniga was the recipient of numerous international prizes and awards. His work is exhibited frequently in prominent galleries throughout the world and may be found in the permanent collections of twenty-nine museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum, the Mexican Museum in San Francisco, and the Phoenix Art Museum. His influence remains far-reaching.
Francisco Zuniga died in Mexico City on August 9, 1998."
