Need Works conserved? Check out the Cinservation Center


Here at The Conservation Center, we are always excited to have the opportunity to work on pieces with fascinating provenance. Recently we have had the distinct pleasure of treating several such pieces. In this month's newsletter, we will share the story of visually memorializing Albert Einstein, and discuss the treatment of a treasured family violin.
We will also share the treatment story of a model Japanese temple-- a project that required the dedication of several different departments at The Center to ensure the piece's wellbeing for years to come.

Conserving Einstein Ephemera

Einstein's book and photograph required a creative design solution from our Framing & Display Department, with custom acrylic work to create the illusion of anti-gravity.

Family Heirlooms: Restoring a Violin
Our multi-talented furniture conservators treat a treasured violin. With the bow, case, and violin all in a serious state of disrepair, our Furniture and Objects Department was able to fully restore the 1/4 size student instrument.
Reconstructing a Japanese Temple
Some projects take the whole team-- the story of an in-depth treatment from conservation to shipping. 


Our shipping team created custom packaging to keep the newly conserved temple safe during storage and transit. Thanks to their time and consideration, the work arrived in pieces but left as precious cargo.
