Ask the Curator: Conservation



Q:  Does The Cummer do restoration work or conservation treatment on-site? Can I bring my object over for an examination?

Conservator at workA: Conservation and restoration of art and objects is such a specialized field. Professional conservators spend years in school and in training programs learning how to assess damage and treat it accordingly without causing additional stress on the artwork. Only the largest of museums have a team of conservators located on-site as part of their museum facility.
