Objects Conservation

Located at the de Young, the Penny and James Coulter Objects Conservation Center provides for the preservation, conservation and scientific study of all three-dimensional works of art in the FAMSF collections, which total more than three-quarters of the collections out on permanent display. Working with such diverse collections, the conservators must have a strong understanding of a wide range of materials and techniques as well as an awareness of culturally sensitive issues specific to each object.
