Art Installation & Handling

With Sentry Art’s Handling and Installation team, you can be confident you are receiving museum-level quality art installation and handling services.

Sentry has expertise and experience installing a variety of mediums, including canvas paintings, tapestries, works on paper, object and historic displays, and site-specific sculptures.

To ensure your art is securely installed for the duration of its display, we also specialize in security hardware, cleats, D-rings mounts, and wire hanging installations. Each art installation requires an installation floor plan, which makes note of the location where each piece will be hung. Sentry can work with you to create an artwork placement plan, or you can provide us your already prepared plan. With this document in-hand, Sentry Arts will arrive at your location, place the artwork as designated by the plan, and with your approval, install your artwork!

Sentry Arts’ art handling expertise includes artwork de-installation, moving artwork to new locations in a building/site, packing and shipping all types of artwork from giclee prints to monumental sculpture. Whether your organization is downsizing or renovating, we can carefully de-install, pack and move the artwork prior to site closure and transport the artwork to another site, storage or auction. Each piece is cross-referenced with your inventory to ensure all artwork is included and moved.

If no inventory exists, Sentry Arts has a capable staff of art inventory specialists. Our art inventory team will record specific data about each work of art and add the data into a virtual database for easy access and art inventory management.
