Adopt A Work Of Art Program | Heckscher Museum Of Art

Are you looking to forge a deeper connection with art in 2021?

The Heckscher Museum Of Art is proud to offer an exciting "adoption" program for works in their collection requiring conservation. For the cost of conservation, this is a unique opportunity to become a proud "parent" to some of the museum's most important treasures!

One of the principal responsibilities of a museum is the care and preservation of its collection. Even in the best of circumstances, objects age. Exposure to light and atmospheric debris discolors and damages fragile painting, sculpture, and paper surfaces. Over time, materials can change, sometimes adversely affecting an object’s condition. In some circumstances, affected works cannot be exhibited.
