Is Your Art Earthquake-Proof?

No one really likes to think about earthquakes, except until they happen usually. But then it could be too late to save your valuables. Take a look around your house; is there anything unsecure that you wouldnʻt want to lose in a quake? If so, then perhaps youʻll want to secure them down.

I didnʻt even know you could “quake-proof” your art until a recent trip to the hardware store, where I discovered QuakeHold! Museum Putty. I took it home and tried it, and it seems to hold things in place really well: paintings, small sculptures, other fragile or delicate objects.

Super simple to use: Just press a little ball onto the back corners of paintings, or on the bottom of objects, hang or press item down, and twist a little to secure. You canʻt move that item easily anymore, unless you aim to, it comes off with a direct pull, and is reusable on other objects.

As an artist, Iʻm so thankful to have found this, and Iʻm going to use it when hanging all my paintings. Iʻm not one to be overly cautious, but living in California one just has to accept the potential of seismic shifts. But now, whatever happens, I can at least rest easily that my art will be OK, and thatʻs a big relief! And Iʻll say goodbye to those occasionally slightly askew paintings too.
