2019/20 Subsidized Survey

As part of our ongoing public service each year ICA-Art Conservation selects one collecting institution to receive a free collection survey. The goal of the program is to help the recipient institution identify its preservation needs and plan future conservation and stewardship initiatives. The information gained through the assessment helps the institution prioritize objectives and potentially raise funds to address those preservation needs.


ICA will offer one collection survey focusing on a select group of artifacts within an institution. An ICA conservator will visit the recipient institution to examine the objects on-site for up to two days, and written condition reports and treatment recommendations will be provided. The selected institution will be asked to contribute only the travel costs associated with on-site visits.

Any non-profit cultural institution demonstrating a commitment to collections care is eligible to apply for this survey. The due date for this year’s subsidized survey is Friday December 6, 2019.
