"Alsdorf and Modern Galleries"

Designers, architects and the curators have been able to "reimagine" the Art Institute's entire collection. The new Alsdorf Galleries, designed by the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, have created a bridge between the East Asian Art to Western Civilizations' Art to the Modern Wing. And Proto Productions has brought their concept to reality. Never before have they been able to showcase their 270,000 objects from all their collections concurrently. Proto Productions fabricated over two hundred custom display cases, vitrines, platforms, podiums, dividers, and wall shelves for the Galleries. We were in close co-ordination with their curators, conservators, and designers to maintain compliance with all conservation guidelines, including relative humidity, color schemes, and security. Many conservation cases were also provided with silica gel (desiccant) chambers. Cases were sealed to maintain relative humidity and prevention of dust and other pollutants.
