Conservation Clinics

As part of the museum’s and the university’s missions of public service, advice on condition, care, and possible treatment is offered without charge. Paintings, textiles, works of art on paper, books and archival documents, photographic materials, furniture and decorative, archaeological and ethnographic objects are welcomed with their caretakers for 30-minute appointments. Faculty and students share their knowledge about the care of works of art of all materials with collectors, curators, caretakers, or scholars of works of art or cultural property.

The clinic is held one Thursday per month (1:00 pm–4:00 pm) at the Brown Horticulture Center at Winterthur, Route 52 Greenville, DE 19807.  Appointments are required. Call: Janis Kraft at 302-888-4786
