On Saturday, December 2, UOVO joined the cultural dialogue happening in South Florida by hosting New Wave Art Wknd’s public panel discussion “What is Creative Expression Now? Exploring the Role of Art in Today’s Society.” Panelists included artists Wendy Red Star, Rachel Lee Hovnanian, Kathryn Andrews, and Jasmine Wahi, founder of Project Empty Space, and moderator Michelle Woo. Attendees engaged with thought-provoking insights, underlining UOVO’s commitment to fostering meaningful community engagement.
The panel was held within the state-of-the-art confines of UOVO’s new West Palm Beach campus. Guests were treated to a personal tour of the Westgate Ave. location and were granted up close access to its impressive 50,000-square-feet of storage. The facility is the first of its kind in the region and is constructed above the 100-year floodplain with High Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ) building materials to ensure the safekeeping of all artworks even in the face of dangerous weather conditions.
UOVO was delighted to contribute to the vibrant arts community that defines Palm Beach. As we continue to provide top-tier collection management services in Florida and across the nation, including climate-controlled storage, museum-grade preservation, bespoke packing and crating, and comprehensive end-to-end transportation, UOVO reaffirms its dedication to elevating the discourse surrounding art and its profound impact on freedom of expression. New Wave Art Wknd stands as a testament to UOVO’s multifaceted role, not only safeguarding artistic legacies but also providing a space for dialogue and connection within the artistic community. We are proud to sponsor New Wave’s weekend of vital programming and creative conversation.
