What our clients are saying

“Working with Level Fine Art Services has allowed our institution to achieve more complex and delicate installations than we would be able to manage on our own. As a small museum, we appreciate Level’s flexibility and ability to problem-solve when unexpected situations arise – whether that is an unconventional exhibition layout or a surprise 350 lb. painting. The crew members are professional, skilled, and a pleasure to work with.”

“I began as the Director/Curator of an academic gallery six months ago and don’t know where I’d be without Level FAS. Running a smaller art institution without a full-time preparator on staff means that Level is my go-to service for everything from simple hangs to art packaging and transport. Nick Shifrin and his team of art handlers are hardworking, professional, and exceptionally friendly. They are also creative problem solvers with a diverse range of skills. Most recently, they helped me to install a complicated, large-scale exhibition that required building a new wall in the gallery, looping Super8 film through a series of pulleys and projectors, and creating an immersive “forest” out of 100-foot-long photographs. I appreciate that Nick makes the time to look at the big picture of exhibition projects, to meet with the curator, and to create plans for installations well ahead of time. Thank you, Level!”
