ezStorage’s Brentwood facility has 1st floor artist studios[/caption] We are a collecting culture. We collect everything from artwork to Pez dispensers and everything else in between. Many of us have artwork and family heirlooms in our home that has been passed along from generation to generation or artwork that has just been created by a friend or a favorite artist. Collecting artwork is an investment and you want to protect that investment. If you do not plan on displaying the artwork in your home, then it needs to be stored properly either in the home or at a storage facility specifically designed to store works of art. Storing the artwork in a secured and tightly regulated climate will give you the peace of mind that your artwork is adequately protected.  Most self storage facilities are not designed to secure and protect works of art so please check with your self storage facility before storing such items.  Also, most self storage facilities limit the value of what can be stored so precious works of art require extra special consideration and storage designed specifically for works of art.

Storing Artwork in Self Storage

There are also self storage facilities that offer studio space for artists to work. ezStorage provides local Maryland artists a number of 1st floor artist studios at its Brentwood/Hyattsville storage location.  The ezStorage Brentwood facility is located in the heart of The Gateway Arts District, just north of Washington D.C. The studios are rented under lease agreements via the Arts District Authority. Store your artwork in a specially designed climate controlled environment certified for art storage. Make sure to call the storage facility before storing.
