NEW YORK, NY.- UOVO
, the premier New York-based provider of fine art and collections storage and services, announced that it has acquired Museo Vault, the leading art logistics firm in South Florida. The acquisition of Museo Vault expands UOVOs footprint by 90,000 square feet, adding two superior art storage facilities, one in Miami and a second in West Palm Beach, along with 5 vehicles for art transport, a state-of-the-art viewing room in Miamis Wynwood district, and an in-house crating shop to its portfolio.
Museo Vault was founded in 2008 to support the growing Miami art scene. Since then, Museo Vault has become the preferred art logistics partner of the top collectors, galleries, and institutions in the South Florida region. Like UOVO, Museo Vault was the first facility of its kind, purpose-built exclusively for the storage of fine art and cultural artifacts with unprecedented safety and security measures. Its Miami facility, conveniently located in the arts district of Wynwood, sits 18 feet above sea level at the highest elevation point in the city and was constructed to withstand a Category 5 hurricane. Its satellite facility in West Palm Beach, located in the heart of Palm Beach County, similarly offers fully climatized storage and the highest level security systems.
Museo Vault joins UOVOs network of four purpose-designed facilities in New York, including its flagship in Long Island City and its newest facility in the Bushwick arts neighborhood of Brooklyn. Later this year, UOVO will open a 50,000-square-foot facility in Delaware, strengthening its portfolio and providing access to key markets along the Eastern Seaboard. UOVO is also developing an additional 50,000-square-foot art storage facility in Palm Beach, which will be the first ground-up structure in the area solely designed to store fine art and rare collectibles.
UOVOs expansion to South Florida comes at a time when many New York galleries are opening posts in Miami and Palm Beach to meet the changing needs of collectors. UOVO Founder and Co-Chairman, Steven Guttman, a longtime Miami resident and prominent art collector, said: Today marks an exciting chapter in our companys development as we strive to better serve our clients under an expanded UOVO footprint. With a highly experienced team of professionals and a dedicated clientele, Museo Vault perfectly aligns with UOVOs mission to deliver exceptional client service with individualized attention and care.
