Over the years, the Boston Pack and Ship team has shipped a lot of art. Paintings, sculptures, wall hangings, and even towering installation pieces have all needed to be safely transported from one location to another. We’ve dealt with museums, galleries, private collectors, educational institutions, and family members who want to make sure that Grandma’s watercolors make it into the hands of relatives who live across the country. All of these people have had one thing in common: they’re absolutely passionate about their art. It’s very meaningful to them; a treasured part of their existence. That’s why we go the extra mile and have devoted lots of time, energy and resources into developing the expertise needed to ship artwork safely — whether it’s traveling across town or around the globe.
It’s because of that passion that we want to share this article that details a new tool art lovers can use to help combat the problem of art theft. As you know, stolen art and artifacts can be a big business — but only if they can operate under the radar! Having a searchable database of stolen art and artifacts (if they are valued at more than $2000) provides another layer of security that can be used to stop the loss of these cultural treasures. That way the world’s great works of art can continue providing inspiration and illumination to all who see them.
