Mana Fine Arts has become an essential option for art owners who need their artwork protected from storms like Hurricane Sandy. Located above the flood plain, with a backup generator, art is safe and secure at Mana's facility.
— Amongst the devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy, scores of precious artwork suffered damage beyond restoration as water from the Hudson River poured into basements and street level facilities that stored or displayed irreplaceable pieces of art.
Now meteorologists and New Yorkers alike are bracing for similar extreme weather at some point in the future, and art collectors are scrambling to find a viable solution to protect their expensive and priceless commodities.
Mana Fine Arts has gained a reputation for providing a private and state-of-the-art climate-controlled art storage facility for collectors in New York, New Jersey and from around the world.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Mana Fine Arts has become an essential option for art owners who need their artwork protected from future natural calamities. Mana Fine Arts’ facility in Jersey City, New Jersey, can help protect artwork these destructive storms because:
* the building location is on top of a hill above the flood plain
* the actual storage facility is on the 3rd and 6th floor of the building
* a back up generator will provide power in the event of an emergency
* the facility has personnel trained in emergency management
When it comes to protecting artwork, professional and secure storage is vital. There are no opportunities to replace original works that are damaged. In a report covering the damage Sandy caused to NYC’s art galleries, CNN interviewed gallery owner Leo Koenig, who estimated the toll: "I would not be surprised if, when it's all said and done, the damage that is done to our art world will be in the hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars in unrecoverable work.”
Art collectors in the New York City area that are concerned about properly protecting their art in the face of potential flooding are encouraged to visit www.manafinearts.com to learn more about the pristine 400,000 sq foot facility. Whether it is fine art objects, antiques, film, digital media, or vintage wine collections, Mana Fine Arts can keep precious items secure in climate-controlled, digitally monitored storage.
