  …and our goal as their art consultant was to provide that image to their clients.

It has also been important to Cisco that each of their regional field offices be given a local flavor. Each office showcases artists from the immediate region. We do the initial research on the internet. After the field is narrowed, we go to that specific region or city to meet the artists and see their work in person.

The framing is contracted to local vendors and we maintain management of the project as a whole.

Primarily, we work remotely using floor plans and color boards provided to us by the interior architects.

…[Hilary and her team] bring the skills and talent which has helped me to build an art program that is not only stunning in it’s beauty but reflects the passion that Cisco as a corporation applies to the design/installation of our field sales offices. Hilary and her team are trusted members of our design team.

…in each of their manager offices. This is a very client-specific application. Each officer is asked to select a piece, thus personalizing their work space.

We believe this type of personalization is necessary in order to create an office that customers and employees enjoy.

Natural Watercolors,

  Arcadis is a multinational environmental engineering firm. It was our task to bring them artwork selections that deal with the interactions of humans and their environment. Arcadis is an example of a company whose theme was very specific and whose art collection is very diverse in terms of artists’ techniques and materials. Especially fitting to Arcadis’ water reclamation projects are Natural Watercolors by Mario Reis (left). Each piece was created by floating a frame stretched with linen in various rivers of the western United States. The linen was left in the river anywhere between a few hours to a few days, after which it was carefully removed. The sediment collected on the linen is displayed in a grid.

As one passes the piece pictured above, the image shifts from the bird on the left to the water treatment pools on the right. The questions that the piece evokes, concerning our use of and dependence upon Nature, are hard to ignore.

This well established law firm, located in downtown Denver, is an excellent example of a client updating their office by reframing existing artworks. In so doing, they have retained budget dollars to purchase stunning additions to their collection. To the right are photographs of children from around the world by California photographer, Andy Katz. We reframed the photographs, making them more in line with the interior theme of the new office. We chose simple frames and matboards to reflect the clean, professional look of the interior elements and to place emphasis on the photographs themselves.
