As part of its mission of public service, Winterthur and the University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation consult on condition, care, and possible treatment of objects. Faculty, students, and Winterthur staff share their knowledge about caring for works of art and archival material. Owners or caretakers may make a 30-minute appointment to bring paintings, textiles, works of art on paper, books and archival documents, photographic materials, furniture, and decorative, archaeological, and ethnographic objects. No more than three objects may be brought to the appointment.
Appraisals are held one Thursday per month. Dates are subject to change. Reservations are required.
