Preservation Arts Services Collections of Art

Larger museums often have a dedicated conservation department to care for their collection. Art Collections in the private sector and smaller museums usually do not have staff with this expertise, and so Preservation Arts was created to fulfill this role. In addition to conservation treatment of single or multiple artworks, we can offer a range of preservation services.

Preservation Arts treated many of the artworks for the “Viola Frey : Center Stage” Exhibition at di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art - March 2019

Preservation Arts provides the following services to collectors:

  • Conservation Surveys of Collections

  • Condition Reports

I first worked with Preservation Arts [SF Art Conservation] last year, when Rowan and her team helped prepare a private art collection for a high-profile public exhibition. She was not only sensitive to our tight timeline, the work was careful and thorough, transforming the objects so that they were in the best possible condition to be enjoyed by museum visitors. I also very much appreciate the detailed treatment report, which included information on further object care. I absolutely recommend Preservation Arts [SF Art Conservation], and I look forward to working with Rowan again.
