For the 2024 Bank of America Art Conservation Project, 24 cultural institutions from 11 different nations have received grants, exhibiting a wide variety of artistic styles and traditions.

Since 2010, the Art Conservation Project at Bank of America has provided funding for the conservation of artwork, sculptures, and architectural, historical, and other items that are vital to the maintenance of cultural assets and the history of art.

Paintings, sculptures, and architectural, archaeological, and other art-historical objects of vital significance to cultural heritage have all benefited from the project since 2010.

Since the programme’s establishment, funding has been provided to over 261 projects run by nonprofit cultural institutions in 40 countries to conserve historically or culturally significant artworks that are in risk of deteriorating.
