Atelier 4 has been moving art forward since 1989. It’s a big country, and we cover it from coast to coast with our own equipment and personnel. You can find our climate controlled warehouses in NY, Miami and Los Angeles. We interface seamlessly with our other ICEFAT friends across the globe providing excellence in fine art crate building, licensed customs brokerage and supervised air freight. Our image is from the Lucy Kim installation: Rejuvenate and Repeat at the Great Hall, Institute of Fine Arts, NYU. Our director of technical services, Gary Cullen, leads the install crew at New York University. The challenge: Lift a relatively hefty artwork in a space where scaffolding, and rigging equipment were forbidden. The solution: Old school straps and precision brawn. @nyuifa @garytron2045 @okiemann @atelier4inc @icefat1 #WeAreICEFAT
