What is Conservation?
Most simply, conservation is the preservation, repair, and prevention of deterioration
of the world's material cultural heritage.
Conservators are trained in studio art, art history, chemistry, and have graduate training and significant practical experience in conservation to enable them to make the best decisions for the art and artifacts in their care. All conservation decisions are based on a code of ethics and guidelines for best practice.
