Conservation and Preservation of our museum without walls.
Windsor's incredible museum without walls features 32 large-scale, internationally recognized works of contemporary sculpture in an unforgettable outdoor setting.
To maintain an outdoor collection of this magnitude, regular maintenance is necessary because pollution, moisture (rain, snow, mist, humidity), ultraviolet rays, and a variety of other factors are constantly impacting the sculptures. Every sculpture has its own particular conservation and preservation needs, and the City of Windsor is dedicated to meeting those needs to ensure the pieces in the collection remain a part of the cultural assets and resources that define and showcase what is unique about Windsor.
Each summer season, conservation and preservation work is carried out by summer students. Working with the departments of Recreation and Culture, and Parks and Facilities, these talented student conservation assistants assess, document, re-paint, clean and wax the sculptures along our waterfront and throughout the City.
If you see our student staff members on site at the Windsor Sculpture Park, feel free to stop and say hello. They welcome the opportunity to talk to you about the process they are following to protect our treasures.
