Multi-piece, pin-mounted, angular sculpture with lighting installed behind a hotel Reception Desk to flow across a thirty foot expanse.
Our goals were to realize the designer's concept while working within the budget provided. The finished piece consists of nearly 100 components, a quarter of them outfitted with lighting. We coordinated with the interior design firm, the lighting designer, a graphic artist, the woodworker and the installation crew to realize the final installed piece.
The designer began the collaboration with Art Initiative with the concept of a multi-piece, lighted, angular white sculpture that would energize the wall behind the reception desk of a renovation project they were working on. In order to keep the sculpture in budget, Art Initiative was able to standardize the components of the nearly 100 piece sculpture to five angled shapes which we rotated within the composition to create a wholly unique, cohesive sculpture.
This project was a really successful collaboration involving a lot of highly specialized professionals! We are thrilled with the result, and owe the credit to the design firm-C TC Design for their beautiful concept and ultimate trust in our firm to pull it all together!

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
