> DESCRIPTION

Conservation and Collections Management is an integral part of the Museum’s stated purpose to hold its collections in trust for future generations. Members of the department support the Museum’s goals through development of conservation treatments, study of materials and techniques, and scholarly research. These activities not only further scholarly understanding, but also contribute to public appreciation of the collections.

The department promotes the long-term preservation of the works of art in its care through six conservation disciplines, an analytical facility, and a collections management division responsible for safe exhibition, storage and transport. Following internationally established standards to maintain the aesthetic and physical integrity of works of art, staff members strive for the highest quality in their work and documentation.
