“Promoting a broader understanding of the importance
of cultural preservation while providing meaningful
assistance to an important local collection each year.”
At Georgian Bay Art Conservation, one of our core operating principles is to help make the fine art of preserving objects of artistic, historic, or cultural significance accessible within smaller communities and to individuals located outside large city centers. This year, in recognition of the importance of local community we are proud to launch our Angels’ Project. The primary goal of the project is to promote a broader understanding of the importance of cultural preservation while providing meaningful voluntary assistance to an important local collection each year.
Eligible sites include historic houses, museums, churches or cemeteries, cultural institutions, or any other not-for-profit organization that has a need for basic collections care, preventive conservation, such as: re-housing, conservation picture framing, moving of collections, and remedial conservation treatment. A successful Angels’ Project will also include local and regional publicity such as television, newspaper and magazine coverage to publicize the need for collections care and preservation. Each project will be featured and archived on the GBAC website.
If you are looking for an opportunity to share your expertise and passion for cultural heritage
preservation or are a current student interested in gaining valuable hands on conservation experience,
we want to hear from you. Become an active member of GBAC’s team of volunteers!
