MACC objects conservators examine and treat all three-dimensional works of art and cultural heritage objects. A wide variety of materials are found in the objects lab, including ceramics, glass, metal, painted and unpainted wood, gilt surfaces, leather, feathers, ivory, bone, plant materials, plastic, and other contemporary materials.
Conservation treatments can include cleaning, repair or reassembly, surface stabilization, reversing old and disfiguring restorations, and compensation for loss. In addition to performing in-laboratory conservation treatments, the conservators also conduct object-by-object condition surveys of museum collections and undertake on-site treatments of large-scale works of art.
