Critical History: Provenance at Mia

Establishing the history of ownership for objects in Mia’s collection helps ensure that the museum may legally and ethically own them.


Conservation Projects

As an art museum, proper stewardship of our collection includes the restoration and conservation of paintings, frames, and all objects we hold for our community. Conservation projects happen through a variety of ways, and Mia has the good fortune of sharing our building with the Midwest Art Conservation Center whose professionals partner with us on many endeavors.
