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.
