Member of the Regional Alliance for Preservation, www.rap-arcc.org
A nonprofit art conservation organization located on the grounds of the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, which treats objects ranging from family photographs, antiques and heirlooms to some of the most important paintings, sculpture and furniture in the country. Founded in 1977 to address the conservation and collection care needs of a small consortium of collecting institutions in the Northeast, the Center now serves more than 50 member museums and historical societies in New England, New York, Mid-Atlantic and Southeast, as well as individuals and corporations. WACC has also become a center for information on all aspects of collections care. Students should contact Executive Director Tom Branchick for information on volunteer and internship opportunities.
