Founded in 1952, the Intermuseum Conservation Association (ICA) is
the nation's oldest non profit regional fine art conservation
center.  Based in Cleveland, Ohio, the ICA serves the general public
and a broad membership of arts and cultural institutions, non profit
organizations, government agencies, and corporate and private
collectors.  The center provides a range of conservation and
preservation treatments for materials including paintings, murals,
works on paper such as photographs and books, objects of all media,
outdoor sculpture, monuments, and textiles.  The organization
received its 501(c)(3) status in 1954, and remains the only non
profit art conservation treatment and education facility in the
lower Midwest.
