The MAC team includes seven program trained paintings conservators, an independent objects conservator, a conservation coordinator/registrar, a photographer, two conservation technicians, and a financial manager, all with a particular expertise and interest in modern and contemporary art. Our specialization in modern and contemporary art developed in response to the wide range and unpredictable properties of materials used by artists. We collaborate with museum and private conservators of sculpture, paper, photo, and textiles to fulfill the interdisciplinary needs of modern and contemporary collections. We work closely with framers, shippers, fine art photographers, appraisers, adjusters, insurers, scientists, registrars, and researchers to assist our clients throughout the conservation process. We are also a technical resource for artists, working together in both the restoration of damaged works and problem solving in the production of new works.
