Optium Museum Acrylic®

The Challenge

  • To protect twentieth-century object during exhibition while providing an optimal viewing experience.

The Solution

Optium Museum Acrylic® Display Cases

Allows viewers to see the artwork rather than their own reflections.

99% UV blocking
Protects the artwork from the most damaging light wavelengths, helping prevent fading and degradation.

Abrasion resistant
A durable hard coat protects against scratches from cleaning and general exposure to the public.

Acrylic is half the weight of glass and shatter resistant
Safeguards against injury and damage to art work and visitors.

Anti-static protection exceeds that of glass
Makes for safer, easier fabrication and less cleaning.

The Work

Hildreth Meière (1892-1961) is an important figure in our cultural and artistic history whose legacy received much-deserved attention in Walls Speak: The Narrative Art of Hildreth Meiere, an exhibition organized by the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts at St. Bonaventure University, which went on to travel to the National Building Museum in Washington DC and New York City’s Museum of Biblical Art.
