“Scott, you may be the best conservator I know in the country. I have enjoyed working with you more than I can express.” Perry Huston, Past President American Institute From Conservation, Dallas, Texas

“This was a very politically charged project in the City of San Francisco for over 10 years. We needed someone beyond reproach that we could count on to “knock the ball out of the park.” That’s why we chose Scott Haskins and FACL. Mr. Al Albano, Consultant, Piazzoni Mural Project, Asian Art Museum, San Francisco.

Scott and his staff performed perfectly and did superb quality conservation work on this very delicate painting conservation project. His skills as Conservation Team Leader were superb and much appreciated. Dr. Carl Grim, Chief Conservator, De Young Museum

“Scott , The delivery and work was superb and we are very thankful for your excellent skills and for the return of a piece we love. “ Sincerely Michael and David, West Hollywood, CA

“Dear Scott & FACL, Inc. Staff, YOU ARE ALL THE BEST!!!! The painting looked GREAT and I’m happy. I look forward to working more with you! My very best,” Dennis Marchesi, Marchesi & Co., Desert Springs, CA

Mark Garrido, Project Manager for the General Contractor on the project posted the following on Linkedin.com for Fine Art Conservation Laboratories (FACL, Inc.).

“Scott and his FACL staff of highly competent professional art conservators performed the critical salvage and restoration of a very valuable, irreplaceable historic mural in the main lobby of the Burbank, CA Police/Fire headquarters (as a sub to the general contractor for the City of Burbank). This restoration was a major component of a large water damage correction project that included replacement of the curtain wall system, stone flooring, planters and memorial monument in the middle of and surrounding the mural. Project scheduling was very tight and coordination critical and complex. Under Scott’s hands-on leadership, FACL’s restoration of the mural was flawless, their performance timely and seamless and their cooperation and team work exemplary. Without reservation, I give Scott and FACL my highest recommendation.”   Service Category: Art conservation. Year hired: 2009  Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity

The conservation services, expertise and availability of FACL’s consultations have been of the highest quality and very important to our department (curatorial). In addition, we have greatly appreciated Scott’s willingness to speak at functions, put on workshops for our docents and be an active part of our professional services. We have also greatly appreciated FACL’s flexibility with our budget restraints!” Theresa Manalo, Curator, The Japanese American National Museum, Los Angeles, CA

“The Santa Barbara Museum of Art is so lucky to have a professional conservator of such quality and professionalism right in our own town. FACL is a great resource for us.” Dr. Robert Henning, Chief Curator

We look forward to a good working relationship with FACL into the future.” Brent G. Thompson, Director Historical Department, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“We would have been in big trouble and you made our navigation through the City (Dallas) and with the project’s architects streamlined and professional.

Hey there!

I can’t tell you how happy I am with your work on the portrait. It is just killer! ( I’m a guy, so I hate using words like fabulous or breathtaking) I find myself walking into the living room at least a couple of times a day and just staring at it. I can’t thank you all enough for a job well done. Please let everyone at FACL all know.
All our best from here at the Reagan Library.

After being selected in a competitive selection process, a four year project in Cedar Rapids Iowa City Hall involved working with departments in City Hall and other interested parties during the phases of working on each of the four murals to remove overpaint, clean, inpaint, consolidate detachments, and varnish. Production of media materials for public outreach and fundraising was also part of the project.

Testimonial from Idaho

A testimonial from a US military base

“Mr. Haskins, B. Gen Chuck Yeager was here (Edwards Air Force Base) last week and we told him about your wonderful help with the signature wall in P-1. Talk to you soon!” From Major Hutchison.

Over my professional career I’ve had many opportunities to work on military bases on historical murals, mostly. But my visit to Edwards Air Force Base was a bit different… they had a Flyer’s Wall in the Officer’s Club on base with signatures of many great and notable pilots. Major Hutchison was very interested in preserving the historical signatures on the wall and as we chatted I expressed a dream of mine to fly the speed of sound (or break the sound barrier). Shortly thereafter, this wonderful gesture on her part arrived in the mail, which I was thrilled to receive! I consider Brigadier General Chuck Yeager’s breaking of the sound barrier a major technological and heroic event in my lifetime.
