Outdoor Sculpture & Modern Art Collections

The care of collections of outdoor sculpture and modern art, in parks, gardens, and public setting, presents unique challenges. The uncontrolled environment subjects them to weathering deterioration from rain, storm damage, and exposure. Handling, wear, and abuse like graffiti can further deteriorate original finishes and surfaces.

Modern works of art often include painted finishes or unusual materials that do no demonstrate the long term resilience of tradition sculpture materials such as bronze or stone. Testing and analysis are frequently required to develop new treatments for these works and engagement with the artist or estate is essential to ensure that any treatments are consistent with their goals and the law.

Our Conservators have treated and managed the ongoing care for many outdoor and modern sculptures. Some of the must significant public collections in parks and campuses across the United States have entrusted the care of their outdoor artwork to EverGreene. These include New York City, Chicago, Alexandria, VA, Miami Beach, FL, and Asheville, NC. We have conserved works by 20th century masters in collections at museums including the Metropolitan Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Perez Museum of Art Miami, Crystal Bridges Museum, Neuberger Museum, and The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art. Outdoor collections at other historic sites and public institutions include: Biltmore Estate, Cheekwood, Vizcaya, Columbia University, University of Southern California, The Library of Congress, and cemeteries including Green-Wood, and Arlington National Cemetery.

Our conservation team’s unparalleled ability to assess and evaluate the condition of pieces in the collection, and ultimately provide the appropriate treatments to restore the sculpture and prevent future damage, has led to our continued success in working with unique, modern sculpture collections in exotic environments for private, corporate, university, and civic clients.
