In January 2007, the Ackland launched a new program to fund top priority conservation treatments. Adopt a Work of Art gives individuals and groups the opportunity to sponsor the treatment of an individual work of art. The sponsor of a treatment has the fascinating opportunity to follow its progress through written reports, photos, and, in some cases, lab visits. When the conserved work returns to the gallery, the sponsor will be acknowledged in the wall label whenever the work is displayed in the Ackland Galleries.
Contact Ackland conservator Lyn Koehnline at 919.843.3680 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further information about the program.
Currently, the three metal objects below need conservation work. These objects show signs of corrosion, and should be evaluated and stabilized by a conservator who specializes in the treatment of metal. The cost for each project is $1200.
