Bank of America Art Conservation Project

Since 2010 Bank of America has been graciously providing grants to more than a hundred museums for the conservation of more than 120 projects in thirty countries on six continents. The National Museum of African American History & Culture was one of the recipients of the Bank of America Grants. This museum is the 19th museum of the Smithsonian Institution and the only museum that is dedicated to documenting African American history and culture. Another recipient, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid was awarded a grant to restore Pablo Ruiz Picasso’s Woman in Blue. This specific restoration removed a layer of varnish that allowed Picasso’s first brush strokes to be more visible. These museums work to conserve historically and culturally significant works of art. Restoration can include multiple processes, including consolidation, removing varnish, cleaning the piece to remove dust and particles, relining, re-stretching, mounting and of course handling the work of art in an exceptionally careful manner. Types of art that were restored under the Bank of America grants include but are not limited to: paintings, murals, sculptures, portraits, marble figures, canvas works, textiles and photographs. The works of art included in this book tell significant and important stories, ones that should not and cannot be left untold.

This stunning second edition, custom book is perfectly bound and has hundreds of pages printed on matte paper which include beautiful and vibrant photography that captures the art conservation process at its best. This fine art, hard covered book has a foil stamp on the front and back. The book includes several gatefolds which help to showcase the vast works of art.
