The strange story of Harvard's Rothko murals has become part of the legend of contemporary art. Staff at Harvard Art Museums' Center for Conservation and Technical Research oversaw repairs and remounting of these large yet fragil works in preparation for a major exhibition at the Arthur M. Sackler Museum in August 1988. They were removed from the dining room of Harvard's Holyoke Center where they had hung since 1963 (a gift from the artist), suffering from tears, stains, graffiti, and severe color shifts from exposure to sunlight and instability in the artist's materials.
