Art comes in many forms, and so does ART’s services. Their team of professionals restore paintings, works on paper, historical documents, antique and contemporary picture frames, photographs, murals, sculptures, taxidermy and more. Collectibles and sentimental items are often irreplaceable, and ART understands the importance of the careful and deliberate handling of damaged pieces.

ART specializes in the restoration of a wide range of art and collectibles and they provide emergency disaster response to any art or collectible claim. The experienced and knowledgeable team can quickly assess, recover and return artwork to pre-loss condition. They operate with a high sense of urgency to deliver quality work and provide cost-effective, “hands-on” service.

Join guest speaker Mary Fisher-Smith as she shares ART’s processes and introduces the ARMA community to their state-of-the-art facilities. A guided tour and beer/wine reception will follow the presentation. We hope you will be able to join us for a little pre-holiday cheer, so don’t delay and RSVP today!

This event is generously being hosted and underwritten by ARMA Detroit Platinum Sponsor DFD-Document Restoration Services.
