As members of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC), International Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (IIC), and The Institute of Conservation (Icon) we are able to remain up to date with the latest developments in the treatment and preservation of fine and decorative arts.
