UOVO to Open Its Fourth Art Storage Facility in Brooklyn

UOVO, the New York–based art storage company conceived of by real estate executive and collector Steven Guttman, has announced that it is opening its fourth location in Bushwick, Brooklyn, in 2019. UOVO boasts that it provides a “holistic” approach to collections management.

“Since opening UOVO in 2014, we have seen an unprecedented demand for our integrated art storage and services, which represent a complete reimagining of the industry,” Guttman said in a statement. UOVO, which means egg in Italian, received its name to reflect the company’s mission of safeguarding fragile objects by means of its team of experts, customizable climate-controlled rooms, and variety of installation and transportation services.

The company’s flagship facility, UOVO: NYC, is an eight-story, 280,000-square-foot structure located in Long Island City. It also has an additional two buildings in Rockland County. Made entirely of reinforced concrete, the 150,000-square-foot Bushwick space will be housed in a three-story building that has twenty-foot ceilings in order to accommodate monumental works of art.

Today, the company has more than 1,350 clients, including museums, galleries, fashion houses, artists, foundations, and individual collectors. With the addition of the Brooklyn location, UOVO has amassed more than 650,000 square feet for art storage in New York in the last four years.
