CONSERVATION, RESTORATION, & MAINTENANCE

 

GSW has project managed the assessment, conservation treatment, restoration, and maintenance of many large and small 20th century contemporary sculptures. Our staff's experience working for the top two largest fine art foundries Tallix and Polich Art Works have afforded them unparallel and unique experiences in the engineering, casting, fabrication, finishing, restoration, delivery, and installation of all sizes and types of sculpture.
