Operation preservation

New England Regional Art Museum's Adopt-an-Artwork program enables members of the community to make a tax-deductible donation to NERAM to sponsor the conservation treatment of a specific artwork in the NERAM collection by International Conservation Services.

Since the program was launched in 2015 the Adopt-an-Artwork program has raised over $170,000 towards the treatment of 100 paintings, prints, drawings and watercolours. The program  has also increased community awareness of conservation issues through associated activities including presentations, the Operation Preservation exhibition and social media. 

Adopted works have and will continue to be sent International Conservation Services for a range of treatments, the process and outcomes will be documented on this site so that you can follow the work's progress.
