Custom Framing & Fabrication

Collaborating with the conservators, the Custom Framing and Fabrication Department designs framing packages and displays to provide the best and most attractive housing for your piece.


The manner in which a work of art is mounted and framed has tremendous effect on both its long-term preservation and the way the art is perceived. The expert staff in the Custom Framing and Fabrication Department use archival materials and museum-standard techniques to ensure proper protection of your piece. The department also works with the client to specially design frames and framing packages to enhance the overall aesthetic of the artwork.

A large percentage of items at The Center require treatment due to poor framing techniques and materials. As the field of framing has developed and advanced, the materials and techniques of the craft have changed. The Center has been at the forefront of these new developments and constantly researches new methodologies to best house and protect your pieces. 

Framing consultations are available upon request.
