Professional Artists, Studio Art Instructors and their students use the Midwest Art Conservation Center (MACC).
MACC’s professionally trained and highly-skilled conservators can provide information on material selection options, advise on the best exhibition and storage methods for future preservation of an artist’s work, and make recommendations for safe packing, shipping, and handling.
The Code of Ethics and Guidelines for Practice of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works governs the methodology and standards behind all elements of MACC’s treatments and programming. At the core of this code is an informed respect for the cultural property, its unique character and significance, and the legacies of the people or person who created it.
MACC conservators can address damage caused by accidents, inherent material problems, excessive light exposure, poor storage, and previous repairs. Preventive maintenance and high-quality conservation treatments add and ensure lasting value for paintings, objects, textiles and works on paper.
Contact MACC at 612-870-3120 or firstname.lastname@example.org to talk with a conservator about your art.
