"Successful outcomes are the result of great collaborations."
1. Brand Alignment
Successful outcomes are the result of great collaborations. That's why we first learn about your company's mission, culture, values and vision, and determine how the art can communicate your key messages to your targeted audiences.
Working together with your project team we develop outcome driven objectives for the art program that help tell your story, enhance your environment and promote your brand.
2. Project Development
A careful review of your space is conducted to determine key locations, the type and size of art required for each area. We evaluate your existing art and advise you on its reuse, repair or disposition.
We work closely with you to ensure that a suitable budget is planned to provide the most value for your dollars. This enables us to devise solutions for a customized art program that fulfills all your requirements.
3. Art Program Strategy
The next step is to develop a concept for the collection, and a strategic plan, processes, milestones and timeline for implementing and managing the project.
We assist in the development of a policy document that includes a mission statement, guidelines for art acquisition and deaccession, defines roles and responsibilities of internal staff and/or outside consultants for documentation, management and care of works in the collection.
4. Art Acquisition & Commissions
We locate art that meets your specific criteria, negotiate the best possible price, present works for approval, and recommend ways to dispose of or reuse existing works to realize the most value for you.
We source artwork from individual artists, auction houses, galleries, dealers and publishers according to the needs of each project. For site-specific commissions we identify artists, negotiate terms and oversee the entire process.
5. Art Display
We work closely with expert framers, fabricators and lighting specialists to create a dynamic presentation of the art that will enhance each work, complement your design and protect your investment. Custom framing, pedestals, displays and signage are specified to meet the needs of each client.
6. Delivery and Installation
With a network of local, regional, national and international art shippers and installers, we are able to arrange for and oversee the safe delivery and installation of your artwork.
We coordinate all necessary art in transport insurance and scheduling according to the project timeline.
7. Art Collection Management
Once the artwork is successfully installed, our job is not done. To ensure your investment is always protected, we provide a range of support services to help manage and care for your collection, including:
electronic inventory control system
security and environmental issues
updating insurance appraisals
ongoing maintenance and repairs
art rotation plan to keep the collection fresh
