About the event

Have you ever wondered how artworks travel for exhibition, especially when they are large or unusual? There is a whole industry devoted to moving fine art around the globe, though it is rarely discussed and hardly acknowledged. This Art Talk will provide an overview of the basic methods, materials, and vocabulary used when packing and crating art and other cultural heritage objects for transport, with examples from real packing solutions and how they were achieved. For over 20 years, Meg Colbert worked at a fine art crating company that served all the major museums in New York City and the surrounding area. She has packed art in museums, galleries, artist’s studios, auction houses, and in private collections, and will share some of the more interesting stories she has about working in the field.
