The following are some of the sculpture restoration projects Mr. Keropian has completed over the years.

In 1980, Mr. Keropian and two fellow sculpture students created an antique cast restoration project to restore the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Art's (PAFA) neglected collection of plaster sculptures. Thanks to the fine guidance of sculptor instructor Alexander Hromych they restored the Parthenon Frieze, Michelangelo's Slave, Houdon's L'Ecorche and John Paul Jones, and numerous Greek and Roman statues, completing the three year project with the plaster restoration of the Ghiberti Doors.

During this time, he was also working as conservation assistants to Conservator Virginia Naude -Norton Arts, Inc and was working on a sculpture rigging team for the P.A.F.A. Museum.

While employed with the Tallix Foundry for ten years, there were many opportunities to work on sculptures that needed a little or major repair. Works by Charles Grafly, Donald Delue, Nathan Rapaport, Walker Hancock, Evangelos Frudakis, and Albert Wein to name a few. During this time he also restored a number of concrete columns and architectural elements for Dick's Castle which overlooks Constitution Island and West Point in NY.

In 1996, he was asked to restore the National Academy of Design's cast of Houdon's L'Ecorche or "flayed -man". Art Students from around the world have used this figure to study human anatomy for over two centuries.

He has been a technical advisor to the Albert Wein Estate since 1987. Mr. Wein passed away in 1991.

In 2006, he was asked to restore a number of plaster sculptures and frieze by Leo Friedlander for the Friedlander Estate.

Mr. Keropian recently restored several Greek Sculptures for Fairfield University in Connecticut.
