Conservation

Founded in 2001, the Whitney's conservation department engages in the preservation and long-term care of works of art in the Museum’s collection. Designed with a multi-faceted approach to conservation in mind, the department embraces innovative approaches to the treatment and technical study of works of contemporary and modern art that includes historical and scientific research, technical examination, and artist interviews.
