The art world gets back to businessJune 23, 2020
A message from Crown Fine Art’s Vice President
The art world is springing back to life. Many museums and galleries are already open across Europe and I’m looking forward to seeing more doors opening – after all, there’s only so much satisfaction you can get from seeing your favorite works on screen!
I wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate those of you helping to re-open culture and welcome visitors again. Never before has access to art, and art spaces, been more important.
Crown is also open for business, and I want to reassure you we remain committed to providing an exceptional global service and the passion for art our customers have come to expect. Today I’d like to share a little more about what we’re doing, and how we can continue to support you as we all adjust to a new normal.
We’re putting safety first
Our primary focus has always been the health and safety of our teams, as well as our clients and customers. So, we’ve implemented processes and made investments in our vehicles that allow for effective social distancing. These vehicles are also sanitized daily and all Crown employees have been issued with their own Personal Protective Equipment. It makes me incredibly proud to see our colleagues in the U.K. helping to deliver essential equipment for the National Health Service safely. While in India, Crown employees have also been helping distribute precious Covid-19 test kits nationwide.
If you’d like more information on what you can expect from a Crown-managed service, read our Service Delivery Safety Standards.
The crisis has unexpectedly transformed the world as we know it. So, we’re also exploring new ways to provide our services in cooperation with service partners – specific to cases where couriers cannot make trips due to travel restrictions. If you would like further advice or information on any of our services, please get in touch with your nearest office.
I’d like to close by thanking you for your continued support and business. No one can see the road ahead, but we are all in this together, and I’m looking forward to seeing your precious works pass through our doors once more.
Fred Weijgertse, Global Vice President of Crown Fine Art
