Artist at Large Consulting
an art implementation service
Our expertise includes writing RFQs and proposals, sourcing artists, managing juried selection process, and artist contracts. We also coordinate the installation of public art works in a variety of media. By providing administrative support to both the artists and the developers, we demystify and facilitate the process of commissioning public art, and bringing it to fruition. Through art, we emphasize incorporation of site history with the architecture, to enhance the resident's daily life experience, and sense of place,
while energizing the neighborhood.
