backstory: Unsung heroes
The answer: You can’t stay six feet apart when you move a heavy, four-foot painting. So, the question becomes, how do we provide proper protections for our art handlers while they do their important work? It’s a question being asked by museums all across the country right now. Our art handlers are the great unsung heroes. When you walk into a museum and see everything looking so beautifully on the wall (can’t wait to see that again!) you have the art handlers to thank. They lift, carry, install, and de-install our precious works of art. Thank you art handlers!
