Landmarks Preservation Guild is a committed group of volunteer interns who examine and maintain works of art in the Landmarks collection. They devote time and energy to preserve works of public art so they may be enjoyed by future generations.

Interns learn maintenance methods through periodic training sessions led by a conservator. These include techniques to monitor and record changes in works of art, to wash and wax outdoor sculpture, and to clean works of art made of bronze, steel, and painted metal.

Landmarks Preservation interns contribute one to two hours per week and volunteer for a minimum of one-year. To learn more about becoming a preservation intern, please read the Preservation Guild program description.
