Open University

The Open University campus has a large collection of artworks from around the world. Art Contact has been assisting the team at the Open University to maintain, conserve and restore their collection for many years. Most recently Art Contact was appointed to conserve and re-frame where appropriate their large collection of limited edition prints and paintings.

The pictures were largely re-framed in similar moulding so that any combination of artworks could be hung together as required. When required artworks were enclosed behind acrylic covers to add additional protection to vulnerable artworks.
