AbstractThe overall question that this thesis attempts to answer is: how do the surroundings of a sculpture and its setting effect a sculpture’s conservation efforts. In this thesis four case studies of works of sculpture of various materials, displayed in different settings in the Tucson area, each experiencing varying conditions depending on their environment, will be discussed. Their preservation plans and conservation treatments will be outlined and compared, showing the varying conservation/preservation approaches to these sculptures, depending on their material and setting. This will all be related to the importance and role of preventative conservation in modern conservation practices.
