The Art of Self-Storage

The United States has 2 billion square feet of self-storage space, and the self-storage industry makes more money than Hollywood. Self-storage units have been used as homes, meth labs, and waystations for bomb-making materials — and, in one disturbing case, as a clinic for an unlicensed gynecologist. In Lake Worth, at the fourth-annual “10X10” exhibition, self-storage units become art installations. Curated by Kara Walker-Tome, there are 16 in all, but you have to search them out in a sprawling indoor industrial facility with hundreds of units. In one of them, you might come across a man wearing scuba gear, surrounded by cardboard boxes and submerged in a sea of pink foam packing peanuts. In another, you might find a tiled bathroom with white sausages — or are they sea cucumbers? or bleached intestinal tracts? — piled in the sink and erupting from the toilet bowl. The installations are full of absorbing details and eerie ambiance. Admission is only $5. “10X10” is located at Lake Worth Storage (4166 S. Military Trail, Lake Worth). The one-night-only event runs from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday. Call 561-670-9658, or visit artsiteprojects.org.

Penn, is there any way to know if my storage unit is at risk? I've heard that there are ways to insure a storage unit, but I'm not sure how to do that. I might just have to go and inspect my unit to make sure everything is fine. http://www.baemmonsstorage.com/units.php

Most Americans have self storage units. Self storage can make it much easier to eliminate clutter, while being able to hold on to all of your valuables. Storage units also provide a great place to store seasonal items. You no longer need to stumble over Christmas lights in June while walking through the garage.
