For much of the previous year, our team traveled all across the Pacific Northwest shipping artwork, installing exhibits, and safely securing collections in our art storage locations. At the start of the year, we saw a spike in the need for our services and the importance of our services and public art in our communities. Now as we look at the open landscape of 2022, we are focused on expanding our art storage services and supporting artists and collectors in the Pacific Northwest.
Fine Art Storage Growth
Our public art survey helped us obtain an updated understanding of what was important to art lovers in the community. The survey revealed how crucial public art is for neighborhood development. In response to this art demand, artists began to ramp up their production and needed a professional to facilitate storing and preserving their pieces. Our team at ArtWork FAS was able to fulfill that need and grow our physical footprint.
By the end of 2021, we were able to achieve a 35% increase in art storage space in the Portland area. The growth didn’t end there. 2022 has even more opportunities on the horizon, and will bring a 400% increase in climate controlled storage to the Puget Sound.
A new year brings new opportunities to support our local artists and neighborhoods. With our plan in place for expanding our art storage solutions, we have our eyes set on growing even further in Seattle. In addition to the need for secure storage for these artists’ and collectors’ pieces, we’ve also invested resources in improving our operational systems for art transportation and collection management.Our brand new operating system is the solution. This new system simplifies the logistics for art coming and going from our storage facilities, as well as for pieces that are relocating to another home. All of these plans will have a positive impact on public art and its role to support artists, inspire creativity, and facilitate neighborhood identity.
