You are here: The Framer's Workshop > Examples of Our Work > Andy Warhol "Mercedez Benz" in a protective Optium Museum Acrylic Box

Mercedes-Benz Research & Development of Sunnyvale, CA, needed to add both UV and physical protection to an original Andy Warhol on canvas. They requested that we devise a way to protect the art while in the original frame and without removing it from the wall. ABOVE is a Photoshop generated visualization of the option they chose. BELOW is a photo of the completed installation. FURTHER below is a DETAIL of the installation device.

The acrylic box is made from Tru-Vue Optium Museum Acrylic. This product not only filters 99% of damaging UV light, it is extremely strong and abrasion resistant. Moreover it is produced with a patented process that virtually eliminates unwanted reflections and glare. It is the ultimate protective solution for large works of art.
