Our Art Storage Advantage
B.R. Howard is located in central Pennsylvania, less than 2 miles from accesses to major interstates. Due to this unique location, B.R. Howard has been able to easily create and maintain successful working relationships with clients in major cities like New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington DC.
Art storage facilities in big cities are generally limited in space and come with premium prices. With our convenient art storage in PA, B.R. Howard is able to make collections accessible on short notice without the city costs, which allows the cost savings to be directed towards other institutional goals.
The lab and storage area at B.R. Howard is occupied daily by conservators and technicians with many years of conservation experience. They have an interest in making sure the artifacts that are stored here are well maintained and secured. If needed, these conservators can make assessments or treatments in-house, reducing additional transportation expenses.
