Belanger Art Methods is dedicated to providing the highest-quality
collections-management and advisory services to museums, historical
societies, and cultural institutions. Whether the focus
of a collection is highly specialized or broadly encyclopedic,
we strive to assess ways in which our organizational methods
can strengthen the missions of each of our institutional clients.
In a reflection of the values of UNESCO and the American Association
of Museums, our methods always emphasize the safe preservation,
presentation, and promotion of a diversity of materials from
across the globe.
The scope of our institutional services is rooted in an
interdisciplinary approach to the multi-faceted issues affecting
the museum world today. Drawing from firsthand experience
in the industry, we develop and implement comprehensive strategies
tailored to managing a multitude of diverse responsibilities.
These processes can involve streamlining existing systems as
well as cultivating new and efficient ways of overseeing projects
in the following five core categories:
and provenance research
translation, and copy editing
planning and installation
Our advisory services underscore a familiarity with the
newest technologies actively impacting the field. We consider
the specific needs of each institution from the outset and suitably
determine if any specialized technical services are required
to safeguard a collection. We work with the latest database
technologies to regularly liaise with our colleagues in these
satellite industries and can help facilitate the following services:
framing, and mounting
lighting, and photography
packing, and transport
and climate-controlled storage
Belanger Art Methods routinely oversees time-sensitive
projects and facilitates special services, including appraisals,
on an as-needed basis. We realize that the duties of overseeing
a museum collection often grow to incorporate unexpected challenges.
After years of routinely handling inquiries in museums, galleries,
and auction houses, we endeavor to collaborate with our institutional
clientele using only the most efficient and expedient methods.
