Restoration of the Permanent Collection

October 24, 2017 - January 8, 2018

The University of North Florida has amassed a substantial Permanent Collection of art works in various media, many which were donated as personal or corporate gifts, or purchased by the University. In May 2016, the University engaged the services of Burgin Restoration of Lithia, FL to provide conservation and restoration services for select paintings from the Permanent Collection. A total of 253 paintings were examined, with 68 pieces deemed worthy of restoration. When restoration is completed, the paintings will encompass an impressive 18th, 19th and 20th century collection of portrait, figurative and landscape art, which will serve as a significant part of the Permanent Collection and an exceptional aid for the future education of UNF students.

 

The first seven of these restored paintings, with label information detailing their condition and appearance prior to restoration, are now on display in the UNF Gallery of Art, Back Gallery, Founders Hall, Building 2, Suite 1001. All Gallery events are free. UNF charges $5 for parking (no charge after 5:00 pm on Fridays).
