Public Art Commission Reviews

Good stewardship of public art collections begins with material selection and siting. RLA was one of the first conservation firms in the nation to offer conservation review of new public art commissions prior to their fabrication and installation. Artists and agencies contact us either at the proposal phase or once a commission is accepted, and over the phone or in person we review material choices, fabrication methods, siting, and proposed maintenance schedules. The result is a highly useful tool that helps agencies plan for longterm maintenance of public artworks as a means of avoiding costly treatments. Best of all, these reports are very economical.
