March 17, 2009—Besides featuring a selection of fifteen beautiful etchings, engravings, and woodcuts, a new exhibition in the Rotherwas Room, Hendrick Goltzius’s ‘Life of the Virgin’: Surpassing Tradition, debuts an exciting new framing mechanism invented by preparator Tim Gilfillan. During the daytime, the fifteen light-sensitive prints on display are covered by protective curtains, which museum visitors must lift in order to view the work.  "I fixed soft Ethafoam blocks to the back of each frame which are positioned to fit up against the stiles [of the] recessed paneling of the walls.  This keeps them from moving from side to side or bouncing off of the walls when the curtains are moved.”
