Art conservation for campuses

B.R. Howard works with campuses to help maintain and conserve public art and exhibits. Many colleges and universities own art and artifact collections, exhibit works of art, or have acquired public art and sculpture throughout their campuses. Regular maintenance of outdoor campus sculpture, managing campus art collections, and preparing new exhibits for on-campus museums can be overwhelming for a curator or registrar with limited staff. B. R. Howard’s diverse team is equipped to streamline the process and keep your campus looking it’s best at all times. 

Campus Art Conservation Services


An assessment is the good place to start to learn more about the condition of your collection. Our trained staff will thoroughly examine your pieces and help you understand the treatment that the piece needs, how urgently it needs done, and how often it should be treated.


Creating a consistent art maintenance schedule ensures that each piece in your collection is getting the proper care it needs at the appropriate frequency it deserves.


Our skilled conservators always provide treatment in compliance with AIC standards. This includes any type of repair, restoration, maintenance, or preservation techniques.


If your staff has never been properly trained in how to care for your public art (or just needs a refresher), one of our conservators can teach your staff the best practices and techniques for your collection.
