What’s art, what’s defacement, and what should stay? Paint can stain and penetrate deeply into surface, making it harder to remove. Without the proper care and attention, graffiti can lead to corrosion and secondary damage that requires more treatments down the road.
Our conservation team provides both treatment recommendations, carries out treatments, and offers training for graffiti removal in the most effective and least aggressive way. We also work with clients on preventative measures to safeguard collections to reduce future damage and devise methodologies when preserving graffiti as historic artwork.
