As someone who has the pleasure of working in an art space daily, I am lucky enough to see this creative industry from many angles. When I stumbled onto WRAPIT-TAPEIT-WALKIT-PLACEIT I had a laugh. A peek into the often irreverent job of art handling, this tumblr certainly has a perspective most art musuem goers don't see everyday. Talk about art in context, here are a few of my faves. The best part is that you can send in your own image, in case you stumble into the backroom during your next art adventure!
Ozkaya’s “David (inspired by Michelangelo)” in front of Lincoln Center, New York City, 2012.
Transporting the Bavaria Statue to Theresienwiese, 7 August 1850
