Grants to USA nonprofit organizations for professional art conservation research, publications, symposia, and conferences. Funding is especially intended for art conservation proposals focusing on European art of the pre-modern era. Proposals should detail plans for creating and disseminating specialized knowledge, including archival projects, development and dissemination of scholarly databases, documentation projects, exhibitions and publications focusing on art conservation, scholarly publications, and technical and scientific studies.
Grants are also awarded for activities that permit conservators and conservation scientists to share their expertise with both professional colleagues and a broad audience through international exchanges, professional meetings, conferences, symposia, consultations, the presentation of research, exhibitions that include a prominent focus on materials and techniques, and other professional events.
Support for conservation treatments is generally limited to works from the distributed Kress Collection and is coordinated through the Kress Program in Paintings Conservation at the Conservation Center of the New York University Institute of Fine Arts.
