artist bio

Guardian Fine Art Services was founded by John Shannon, a passionate art collector, former president of the Racine Art Museum, and life-long supporter of the arts in Wisconsin and beyond. Shannon and his wife, artist Jan Serr, amassed an art collection of more than 3600 pieces. When the collection outgrew their home, Shannon and Serr were unable to find secure, climate-controlled art storage in Wisconsin. Rather than travel to Chicago, they decided to purchase and renovate the 1924 warehouse located at 1635 W. St. Paul Avenue in Milwaukee to house their collection. Guardian offers museum quality storage and fine art services. The Warehouse, a private museum within the building mounts curated exhibitions from the Serr/Shannon permanent collection as well as other sources.

artist statement

Guardian offers professional fine art storage and services to artists, collectors, and institutions. Guardian is located in a five-story concrete and brick building in Milwaukee's Menomonee Valley. Our purpose-renovated building is secure and climate-controlled and we offer both managed storage and private vaults at reasonable rates. Whether storing one item or 1000, Guardian will offer the best price and service possible.

Guardian employs trained art handlers who are available for installation, packing and crating, and transportation of artwork locally, nationally, and internationally. Guardian also provides inventory reports, cataloging, photography and digitization, and condition reports for insurance purposes and estate planning.
