Welcome to the first e-newsletter from the University of Pretoria Museums. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, we nevertheless wanted to keep our audiences updated on the work we continue to do, even if most of it currently remotely occurs from home. We hope you find the newsletter engaging and valuable reading as a digital means to keep all our audiences updated.
In this newsletter, please see the message from the Head of the Museums, discover how the UP Museums digitally celebrated International Museum Day 2020 in May, explore how the art conservator treats artworks from her home studio, and read the museum staff’s commentary on the South African Tourism Webinar – Tourism Recovery Plan. Through our “book nook” feature, learn more about recent publications from the UP Museums and explore the art collection through our new online website feature called “Artwork 4 the Week”. Each newsletter focuses on a different gallery, this first issue showcases the “Eastern Ceramics Gallery”, which houses the largest collection of Chinese ceramics in South Africa.
