Art handlers are responsible for working with registrars, collection managers, and conservator-restorers to ensure that artifacts are handled and cared for in an appropriate and safe manner. Art handlers are frequently tasked with a wide range of duties. For example, a museum or storage facility's staff is responsible for everything from packing to unpacking to installing and dismantling works of art.
