The Associated Press has an article about companies selling off art work. While some are using the money to pay off debt others are re evaluating their art colletions.
First it was individuals selling art work, then Universities, now banks and companies. At pack n send we have put on ebay art work for customers.
While it has sold, the customers have asked substantially less than the appraised value. As clients also need cash, they are delving into their art reserves as a way to make quick money.
We have seen companies that are closing put up both their high value art work as well as their framed posters and prints. It has been good for both the sellers and the buyers.
At pack n send we build custom crates for the higher valued pieces, and box the lower priced items. Delicate statues are crated, while the less expensive, less valuable statutes are double bubbled, put in a box with peanuts and then put inside another box for shipping.
