Support one of the oldest conservation departments in America this holiday season

At the Cincinnati Art Museum, we are fortunate to have an expert team dedicated to the highly specialized fields of paintings, paper, objects and textile conservation. Their work can be viewed every day in your favorite galleries.

We hope you will consider supporting conservation of the museum’s vast collection by making a meaningful donation to the museum today. Over a hundred works pass through our conservation department (established in 1935) each year including multiple artworks featured in upcoming special exhibition Frank Duveneck: American Master (opening December 18, 2020) and More Duveneck! Paintings from the Vault (now one view). Read about these efforts from recent Behind the Scenes in Conservation Blogs.
