Fifty Years of Conservation of Cultural Heritage and Art in Western New York

Since Buffalo State’s Garman Art Conservation Department was founded in 1970, it has partnered with The Buffalo History Museum to conserve over one hundred artifacts and paintings from the Museum’s collection. For its new feature exhibit, Fifty Years of Conservation of Cultural Heritage and Art in Western New York, the Museum and the department worked in collaboration to display many of the objects that have undergone conservation treatment. The artifacts displayed include paintings, furniture, and other one-of-a-kind rarely displayed objects. The exhibit celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the Garman program. The exhibit is part of a broader community celebration for the program, in which other local museums are taking part.
