Museum Quality Framing

  • Light, humidity, mold, physical accident are just some of the everyday threats to the integrity and longevity of artwork and art objects. "Museum quality framing" and its variations are practices designed to minimize and even prevent damage to artwork from these hazards.

  • How your art is mounted, what kind of glass is used, how is the actual frame constructed: these are the essential questions of "museum quality" framing.

  • If you have your own questions about preserving your valuables like museums do, call us for a consultation today. We've been providing answers for artists, collectors, galleries and museums for 39 years.

  • Film Screening: The Impossible Railroad
    Thursday, September 17 6 PM
    MCASD Downtown

    Join filmmakers Marianne and Michael Gerdes at a screening of their documentary, The Impossible Railroad, which tells the dramatic story of the 13-year struggle to build the San Diego and Arizona Railway from San Diego to Yuma. Alternating historic black-and-white photographs and movie footage with scenes from the line today, this film reveals John D. Spreckels' dogged determination to complete a 140-mile railroad through terrain often unsuited for that mode of transportation. It proved to be his one significant business failure. Learn more about the film here.
