Eames House Conservation Management Plan (CMP)
The Eames House Conservation Project has reached an important milestone with the publication of the CMP and its offical adoption by the Eames Foundation board. The CMP will provide both broad and detailed policy guidelines for the ongoing use and care of the site—which includes the house and studio, interior collections, and landscape—to ensure the preservation of its many significant heritage values for future generations.

Also now available is Eames House Conservation Project: Investigations 2011 to 2016, edited by Laura Matarese with Chandler McCoy and Gail Ostergren. The six chapters in this publication cover the investigations undertaken at the Eames House by the GCI and its consultants as part of the project.

Conserving a Long-Lost Willem de Kooning Painting
Through an agreement with the UAMA, scientists at the Getty Conservation Institute and conservators at the Getty Museum will work together to study, repair, clean, conserve, and document the painting. This work will include reuniting it with remnants of the canvas that were left behind after the theft and retained by the UAMA since 1985.
