Adam Jenkins received his MS in Art Conservation from the Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation in 2002, with an objects specialization. In the five years following, he served as Project Conservator before completing a three-year Mellon Fellowship in Objects Conservation at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. While working in the objects conservation lab at the PMA, Adam developed his interest in monumental sculpture beginning with the de-installation, treatment and reinstallation of Atmosphere and Environment XII, a COR-TEN steel sculpture by Louise Nevelson. At present Adam is a conservator in private practice living in Philadelphia, and he takes care of several private collections in Philadelphia and New York. He is very interested in LASER cleaning technology and has recently undertaken several of these projects in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. Until recently, he worked with Materials Conservation Collaborative (formerly Milner+Carr Conservation), where he was involved in the treatment of a wide variety of both monumental sculptures and historic structures. It was during his tenure with MCC that he treated of the Giant 3-Way Plug. Adam lectures annually on LASER cleaning and mountmaking for the Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation. He sits on the board of the Philadelphia Area Conservation Association (PACA) and is a Professional Associate in AIC.
