Memory Kloud

Providing services tailored to the needs of art collections for private collectors and artists.

Art is an exploration of how we see and understand the world and is a true representation of culture. When holding objects that convey our cultural history, there is a responsibility to keep them safe for future research and enjoyment. Museums and archives have ethical standards and best practices they must follow, but whats happening to the artwork outside of these institutions? Private collectors need to have similar unmandated ethical responsibilities and artists have a responsibility to themselves to track the volume of work created. Managing the logistics to organize and protect a collection is difficult without experience and can result in lost or damaged artwork. Megan believes that the best practices followed by these institutions can easily and affordably be met by the individual and is passionate in sharing these concepts to instill further preservation of art.
