An Inside Look at Our Fine Art Transportation

All across the Pacific Northwest, our expert team at Art Work FAS has been transporting artwork safely and securely. Although these pieces range in size, quantity, and category, we handle each item with extreme care. Along the way, we come across many iconic art pieces. Here’s an inside look at our team shuttling fine art and what they found along their journey.

#ThatNWBus – Pullman, Washington

fine art transportationLocated between Pullman and Tri-Cities, #ThatNWBus is an iconic bus that has become the centerpiece and backdrop for both tourists and artists alike. This bus was originally abandoned in the 1970’s, but over the years, artists from all locations and generations have left their signature mark for everyone to see. To keep this beauty alive, the Washtucna Historical Museum took ownership of this bus. Decades of artists’ expressions remain accessible for everyone in the area. So of course on our fine art transportation journey, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get a photo of the bus with one of our exclusive shuttles.

Our fine art transportation takes us all over the states including northern Washington. During one of our recent adventures, we had the pleasure of visiting Whidbey Island. Known for being the largest island in Washington, Whidbey is the artist’s destination. The island is home to endless galleries, art walks, and open studio tours all year long. Here is one of our expert art handlers on her journey to safely securing a client’s pieces. 

Transforest – Seattle, Washington


Driving through Denny Substation, our team had the pleasure of viewing the towering Transforest. This site-specific sculpture combines forms drawn from Seattle City Light’s industrial history and the northwestern landscape. The artwork was designed to be an integrated landscape element for public space. Here’s one of our vehicles getting an up-close view of the monumental piece during a fine art transport.
