We take a highly collaborative approach with the artists, galleries, and clients. Every project starts by listening to the client, and our design team will schedule a design brief to understand the goals for the space.
Art Designers work hand-in-hand with artist, galleries, shippers, framers, and installers to prepare the art for installation. We lead and oversee the installation process personally to ensure the final product exceeds expectations.
We work closely with clients to develop an art budget for their projects and use our extensive resources to source art that fits within the established budget and art concept.
When it is time for our clients to sell their artwork, they rely on our expertise and connections in the National Art Market to confidentially and professionally broker their important works of art. With our network of specialty appraisers, galleries, and auction houses, we have successfully helped our clients sell individual works of art as well as entire collections.
AD works with the artists and client closely and collaboratively, there are no limitations to finding the right art for each project. Mindful of the design goals and budget, we present a portfolio of artists for review. Together, we refine the field of artists and help the client select the artwork appropriate to each location. Upon approval, we then contract with the selected artists on the client’s behalf and communicate a schedule for completion.
