Proper care and maintenance of your family heirlooms and works of art will ensure that they are available for future generations to enjoy. There are many things you can do to take care of them yourself. However, sometimes it may be necessary to contact a professional conservator for advice or conservation treatment. Professional conservators combine in-depth knowledge of science and art with extensive practical experience to care for and preserve art objects, artifacts, and other items of cultural and historic value. This is why we have developed a tool to help you find the conservation services you may need.

Who is listed

Find a Conservator is a listing of only those AIC members who have attained Professional Associate or Fellow status in the organization. This means they have had their training, knowledge, and experience reviewed by a body of professional conservators who are recognized in the field for their commitment to establishing and upholding professional standards, promoting research and publications, partaking in educational opportunities, and fostering the exchange of knowledge in the field.

How it works

The tool provides a systematic, consistent method of obtaining current information to identify and locate professional conservation services from all across the United States and abroad.

It allows you to address a wide range of conservation problems, whether your needs are long-range or short-term and whether your collection consists of thousands of valuable historic artifacts, one priceless work of art, or items of great personal value.
