Belanger Art Methods - Art Valuation and Art Collection Management

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:

Collections management
Curatorial and provenance research
Publications, translation, and copy editing
Exhibitions planning and installation
Accessions and deaccessions

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:

Casework, framing, and mounting
Installation, lighting, and photography
Crating, packing, and transport
Offsite 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.
