Generously supported by the Richmond Conservation Studio

New Conservation Grant

We are pleased to announce a new partnership with the Richmond Conservation Studio that will help our museums get paintings conserved.  Beginning in 2020, we will accept applications from our members for this grant opportunity.  Applications will be available on August 1, and due August 31.  The painting selected for conservation will be announced on September 21. 

Grant Guidelines:

This grant is open to museums across the Commonwealth with overall budgets under $1 million.

The institution that is chosen agrees to transport the piece to and from Richmond Conservation Studio.

The chosen institution will allow the Richmond Conservation Studio to post images/ video created during conservation of the painting on our social media/ website/ marketing materials.

The chosen institution will also be able to use those images to post on their own social media as long as Richmond Conservation Studio is given credit for the image and/or work.
