Bank of America Merrill Lynch opens call for submissions for 2013 Conservation Project

November 5th, 2012

The Marriage of Strongbow and Aoife (1854) at the National Gallery of Ireland, which is being funded through the Bank of America Art Conservation Project.

The Bank of America Merrill Lynch 2013 global Art Conservation Project is open for applications. Submissions are welcome from not-for-profit arts and cultural institutions that have significant works of art across all media, requiring conservation. Submission deadline is 30 November 2012.

The Bank of America Merrill Lynch Art Conservation Project is a unique initiative that provides grants to not-for-profit organisations throughout the world to conserve historically or culturally significant works of art that are in danger of degeneration, in order to preserve them for future generations.

Previous grant recipients include The National Gallery of Ireland, for the conservation of one of Ireland’s most important historic paintings, The Marriage of Strongbow and Aoife by Daniel Maclise. Conservation began in the autumn of 2010, with the newly restored picture due to be completed in early 2013.

Applicants can submit proposals online.
