Treasured items displayed in museums present a contradictory challenge, since the art works are there to be both observed...
Proven Protection & Preservation
Our high-performance glass and acrylic glazing solutions are trusted by conservation and fine art professionals to protect and display the most celebrated works of art in the world. We work closely with the museum community to develop our products to meet superior aesthetic and conservation standards.
We’d love to hear from you. Our museum and conservation liaisons are here to answer any question, whether they relate to technical properties of glazing, preservation framing, glazing for traveling exhibitions, permanent collections, and/or loans. We regularly come across challenging framing and display applications and are available to share our glazing expertise with you or your team. If you are interested in a particular subject or in arranging a talk, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are happy to help.
Conservation Scholarship Program
We are pleased to be partnering with the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation (FAIC) and The Institute for Conservation (Icon) to offer these scholarships to professionals and students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to attend, and contribute toward their professional development goals.
Our goals for the program include encouraging international exchange and dissemination of training and conference information. We hope conservators with a thirst to learn from all over the world will take advantage of this program and the knowledge it can bring to their communities.
Included in the Scholarship
- Awards up to $1,500 USD
- Attendance must contribute toward meeting professional development goals
- Commitment to report on and share information gained as broadly as possible
