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 38 years.

    Classic Contemporary features major Pop, Minimalist, and Color Field works in MCASD’s collection of American Art dating from the 1960s and 1970s.
    Iconic examples from the Pop Art pantheon such as Edward Ruscha's lush, droll painting Ace (1962) and Warhol's silkscreen Flowers painting (1967) will be juxtaposed with one of Ellsworth Kelly's greatest early paintings, Red Blue Green (1963).
    Sculpture will be represented by works including Claes Oldenburg’s whimsical Alphabet/Good Humor (1975) and an open-grid sculpture by the seminal conceptual artist Sol LeWitt, Floor Piece #4 (1976). Classic Contemporary showcases the mid-century masterworks that anchor MCASD’s progressive collection.
