The Winterthur/University of Delaware Graduate Program in Art Conservation is one of only five graduate programs in North America that educates and trains conservators. Part artist, part scientist, part humanist, these specialists preserve and restore the artifacts—ranging from great works of art, to fossils, books, and letters—that populate museums, libraries, and archives. Their work makes it possible for scholars to reveal new discoveries about the past and for museums and other institutions to educate the public. Recognizing that preserving cultural heritage is crucial to the United States, the NEH has supported research and training in the graduate program since 1974.
