A new model for client-focused, secure art storage and collection management

100% of profits used to support the artists, galleries, and institutions in the Minnesota Street Project

Minnesota Street Project Art Storage and Services has been created to provide an integrated, one-stop storage and collection solution in San Francisco for collectors, institutions, and galleries. Our state-of-the-art, secure, climate controlled warehouse features comfortable and well equipped viewing, photography, inspection, and meeting facilities. Our plans offer the simplified collection management logistics that collectors and institutions want and need.

Our concierge-level packages combine dedicated climate-controlled storage and one-call, one-bill services for registration, transportation, installation, conservation, insurance appraisals, and other requirements for ensuring a well-managed collection. These packages include use of our viewing and photography facilities, with the help of our art handlers, and bundle in collection accesses – which we call moves – for intake, release, and viewing of as many works as a client wants. We will provide each of our concierge clients secure online tools for cataloguing and tracking stored works, integrated with our proprietary, comprehensive collection management software. We welcome the opportunity to tailor our programs, services, and tools to operate directly with collectors and institutions or through the consultants and other professionals who serve them.

For galleries, institutions, and individuals who have particular requirements for short-term or occasional storage or assistance, we offer a flexible mix of cost-effective climate-controlled and unconditioned storage, as well as a flexible menu of viewing, documentation, art-handling, and logistics-management options that we can combine to meet virtually any need.

Minnesota Street Project Art Services was established by Deborah and Andy Rappaport, long-time collectors and supporters of the arts in the San Francisco area, and the founders of Minnesota Street Project, of which this business is an integral part. The Art Services business was developed both to provide new and needed services for the collector and gallery communities and to generate sustainable financial support for Minnesota Street Project’s artist studio and gallery programs. Andy and Deborah’s collection was the first to be moved into our new facility. The Minnesota Street Project Art Services team is led by Eric Lendl, who is well known and regarded in the San Francisco arts community and who brings the experience needed to create a well-thought out offering and facility and build a capable and confidence inspiring staff.
