Caryatid Restoration Wins Acropolis Museum 2012 Keck Award

On September 14, The Acropolis Museum was awarded the 2012 Keck Award by the International Institute for Conservation (IIC) in Vienna. The Keck Award is given every two years to the individual or group who has contributed most towards promoting public understanding and appreciation of the accomplishments of the conservation profession. Museum specialists have been restoring the Caryatids from the southern porch of the Erechtheion temple since December 2010 and it is an honor to have been recognized. Congratulations!
