Sometimes the work is absolutely grand, but it’s not always fine art or expensive art. The secret to a successful installation is finding art that connects with the people who use the space. Once the connection is made, a person’s emotional connection to the space changes. What was a cold lobby becomes a place where people want to gather. An office becomes a community. Student and multi-family housing become places of relaxation, and feel like home. Sterile healthcare facilities become places of comfort and healing.
Creating that unique connection to their community is a joyful and powerful experience for our clients and for us. It’s why we come to work. It’s what we provide for every project we take on. It’s how we create meaningful spaces.
