ICA’s membership program is designed to serve the preservations needs of museums, libraries, archives and other cultural heritage institutions. In response to requests for personalized, on-site services, we have developed a range of annual benefit options from which our members may choose. The membership program is one of a number of ways to support the ICA, America’s oldest regional art conservation center.
