Thanks to a recent grant of $23,085 from the National Park Service's
National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT),
The Detroit Institute of Arts will upgrade and expand the X-ray
diffraction system and data analysis capabilities of its
Conservation Services Laboratory. By improving crucial capabilities,
the museum will further increase the efficiency of materials
analysis, enhancing the accuracy and reliability with which it can
identify pigments and other artists' materials, and corrosion

The DIA's Conservation Services Laboratory is a resource for art,
historical and cultural institutions throughout the country,
providing examination, analysis, documentation and treatment of
artistic and historic works. It also provides collection surveys,
training, and advice in developing long-range conservation plans.
The laboratory's research scientists work with curators and
conservators to address questions of condition, technique and
authenticity; determine appropriate storage or display materials;
and assist in the selection of conservation treatments.
