The George Washington bust, with a 3D scanner to the left, inside the Walters Art Museum.
The Owings Mills-based company was at the Walters on Thursday taking a 3D scan of a bust of George Washington the museum is now hosting.
“It’s here for conservation work as part of the restoration of the nearby Washington Monument,” said Dylan Kinnett, web and social media manager at the Walters.
