THE INSTALLATOR and Jackson Pollock at University of Iowa

“Moving any piece of fine art is not something one does casually. When the art is valued in excess of $100 million and measures nearly 8’ x 20’, caution and care are the words of the day. Just getting it off the wall is not something done without careful consideration.”
“A crew from the UI Museum of Art, the Des Moines Art Center, the Figge Art Museum, and Methods and Materials,
a fine art installation company, worked together to get Jackson Pollock’s Mural ready to ship to Des Moines.”
