MISSION & HISTORY
Sculpture Conservation Studio Inc. is full-service art conservation and historic preservation facility dedicated the care of sculptural art objects, artifacts, and historic architecture. Since 1988, Sculpture Conservation Studio has provided a full range of advanced conservation treatments, historic preservation project management, sculpture maintenance programs, and consultation services to a wide range of museums, foundations, civic, and private clients.
Our aim as Conservators is to preserve as much original historic fabric of a building or work of art as possible. Our work conforms to the strictest conservation standards and guidelines specified by the Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works as well as the United States Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Preservation of Historic Buildings.
No material will be replaced indiscriminately to save money and time or to improve aesthetics. We are often required to design innovative physical and chemical treatments to meet this end. Wherever possible, tested, reversible, and non-destructive treatments will be implemented. In all cases we avoid the use of harsh and potentially damaging substances.
All of our work is fully documented and the reason for the use of a particular material or approach is always justified at the outset.
We are privileged to hold memberships with the following organizations;
- American Institute of Conservation (AIC)
- Western Association of Art Conservators (WACC)
- International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS)
- International Council of Museums (ICOM)
- Public Art Coalition of Southern California (PACSocal)
