Handling Everything

Our golden rule is to assume that everything is priceless and handle it accordingly.  We provide informed and respectful handling for all items in our care and make handling decisions rooted in our vast knowledge of materials and technique.  SRI art handlers are subject to rigorous, on-going training through our in-house programs and outside certifications.
