History & Mission

Conserve ART LLC adopted this name to reflect the fundamental  components of our work – Analysis, Research, Treatment – the upholding of ethical preservation standards and the promotion of the conservation profession as a whole. The firm was originally formed in 1999 as ConservArt LLC by Directing Conservator, Francis Miller.

Conserve ART LLC provides conservation services to promote the preservation of three dimensional art, architecture, artifacts, and historic cemeteries: the unique culmination of all these object types unified in the surrounding landscape. Often through great effort, we strive to uphold professional standards in conservation practice as outlined by the American Institute for the Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC), Code of Ethics and Guidelines for Practice and the U. S. Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties.

Serving clients across the United States, all projects receive careful attention to detail and responsiveness to the client’s needs.  Projects range from single objects to large collections and often are part of complex projects requiring a team of architects, engineers, and construction management firms.  Team projects that have received notable recognition, including AIA designated “Gold Medal” Renovation of Morse and Stiles Colleges, Yale University, by Kieran Timberlake;  CT ABC Award winner for Renovation of Saint Thomas More Chapel,  Knight Architecture and Petra Construction; and an Award of Merit by the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation for the conservation stabilization of the Forlorn Soldier, now on permanent display in the Connecticut State Capitol.  Clients and collections served include:
