Public Institutions & Visual Arts

Art Work FAS (Seattle, WA & Portland, OR) can advise on optimal placement of installations that will ensure the enjoyment and safety of the public as well as the safety and security of the artwork. In any public institutions setting where art can be placed, our company can provide security hardware if the artwork is within public reach on display in a gallery.

We’re familiar with the common challenges for installing public artwork. We are skilled at planning around architectural features, working with unusual wall treatments or surfaces, mitigating noise during the project, and installing fine artwork at significant heights that require scaffolding or lifts. We are also well-versed in safety protocols for restricting public access during art installations and can obtain any necessary security clearances specific to your institution.

Our Promise

At Art Work FAS, our fine art services for institutions include specializing in expert handling. We work passionately and painstakingly to customize unique and creative solutions for door-to-door domestic and international shipping, warehousing, and preservation of your artwork. Over the years, we have reliably crated, stored, transported, and cared for thousands of pieces of artwork, ensuring safe delivery and reliable installation.
