If your passion lies in preserving important, historical works of art, you can help the museum with your gift.
Collection care and maintenance is a vital part of our role a preservers of our cultural history and creative output. Donor support helps ensure that audiences of the future can engage with great works of art.
Conservation efforts include:
- Researching artists’ materials and techniques;
- Documenting damage to paintings as a result of inherent vice, environment, or human interaction;
- Treating art objects that are in need of intervention; and
- Technical study and documentation.
Conservators also advise on desirable environmental conditions, including lighting, temperature, relative humidity, presentation, loans, and general care. Our conservation activities take place in the museum’s Center for Conservation.
