The New England Regional Art Museum (NERAM) has raised more than $30,000 thanks to the Adopt an Artwork exhibition, an initiative launched in 2015 that aims to help lessen the burden of preservation costs for artworks in the Museum’s collection.

The exhibition runs until 12 November and showcases a selection of 77 artworks, including 36 that have undergone preservation treatments over the past two years. Adopt An Artwork provides an overview of the causes of deterioration affecting museum collections and over half of the pieces on display are available for adoption.
