Public Art Conservation & Maintenance

Outdoor art preservation mitigates the effects of weathering and pollution, addressing the inherent weaknesses of both traditional and modern materials. Information on fabrication methodologies, the significance of a material within the artwork, and how artists view the issues of degradation, transience, and interactivity, guides the development of preservation and restoration strategies. 

Working in public spaces makes balancing work schedules, safety, and job site cleanliness with maintaining public access a necessity. Following a condition assessments, we design and implement adequate conservation treatments, and offer ongoing maintenance programs for outdoor sculpture, murals, fountains, and other public art. Our conservators provide training and quality control for in-house teams and expert advice for acquisition and collection development, transport, removal, storage, mounting, and display of artwork in public spaces.
