Conservation at HoMA

Conservation is an essential part of caring for artworks in HoMA’s world-class permanent collection. The highly-specialized process includes cleaning and restoring individual works to maintain their condition and protect precious objects.

“When we begin conservation of a piece, our goal is to make sure that it will be in excellent condition for at least the next two generations.” – Cynthia Low, HoMA’s Director of Collections

Our Seawright conservation campaign has ended but we will update this page with details on the next artwork or artifact that we highlight for conservation! If you would like to donate to the museum, visit our Donate page.
