Comprehensive Capabilities,
Carefully Applied

While best known for our ability solve seemingly impossible challenges in the most affordable and efficient manner possible, it is important to remember Artcore is a true full-service Fine Art Service provider. Clients both new and old should always rest assured, secure in the knowledge that our considerable resources are at least on par with those of our competitors and, in some aspects, far exceed them. We just find that, by applying a smarter approach and uniquely creative perspective, we simply don’t need to use every tool in our kit to get the job done. Perfectly.

INSTALLATION

Broad Experience,
Singular Focus

Artcore technicians employ a mixture skills associated with many, seemingly disparate, disciplines. For example, any one project may require the deft touch of an experienced cargo handler, the trained aestheticism and presentation skills of a designer, and the analytical mind and spacial awareness of a master rigger. Fortunately, our experienced technicians boast a remarkable breadth of knowledge, and our combined team approach yields a complementary skillset and capabilities that is far greater then the sum of its parts.

Services Include:
  • Residential installations of a single artwork or an entire collection
  • Expert handling on oversize objects and priceless artifacts
  • Corporate art installations and relocation
  • Custom installation solutions for difficult situations
  • Expert rigging services indoors, outdoors and public locations
  • Sculpture installations, custom fabrication of pedestals, supports and related mounting hardware
