Sculpture & Monument Conservation
Sculpture conservation almost always faces remediating environmental effects, such as exposure to weather and pollution, on both traditional and modern materials. Stone crumbles, metals corrode, wood rots, and paint peels or fades. While conservators have a wide choice of conservation treatment options for stabilizing and restoring outdoor sculpture, protection and prevention of future damage remains the main challenge. Ongoing maintenance is usually necessary when is comes to the conservation of outdoor monuments, statuary and sculpture.
