HOW IT WORKS
The most important aspect for a successful completion of any art selection and installation is the process behind it. From years of working with large commercial projects and art committees, Art + Artisans has developed significant written processes and best practices to create a collaborative and engaging experience for our clients. We are experts at guiding you through this inclusive, turn-key process. We identify your goals and priorities, research a wide range of art options, walk you through art selection, project manage procurement and fabrication, and oversee the final installation. Together we build an art program that will give you a deep sense of pride and seamlessly integrates with your design concept and construction schedule. Here’s how we do it!

The Art + Artisans Proven PROCESS
We start with a kick-off to discuss the goals for your art and understand what is most important to you. We review design concepts and site or floor plans, and develop a milestone timeline for meeting all deadlines. Together we prioritize art locations to ensure that your artwork will feel cohesive and thoughtfully integrated into your space. Your final art package will make your design and your brand shine!
This is the fun part! We take the goals and art criteria that we agree on in discovery and dig deep with our research. Our database is filled with thousands of artists and art resources from around Texas, the country and the globe. Our consistent research brings fresh ideas that lead to unique, authentic projects. At our first meeting we walk through a very wide range of art options with you to see what resonates most. During future meetings we work together to narrow and finalize art selections that are the best fit for the project. Your final package specifies media, placement, sizing and pricing. Whatever your specific goals--engagement, innovation, supporting the local community-- we deliver impactful artwork that brings results and differentiates your space.
We take finalized art selections and oversee procurement, fabrication, quality control and the production timeline to ensure projects meet deadlines and your expectations. Behind the scenes we oversee artist contracts and commissions, design custom framing and manage all project vendors. We work closely with any other project consultants to ensure a seamless installation. We frequently collaborate with the architect, design team, GC, project managers, engineers and lighting specialist. We make sure the timing of lighting, blocking, electrical ar foundation work necessary to support your artwork aligns with your construction schedule . There are always many moving parts. Our team is flexible and on top of it so that installation will be smooth and easy for you!
