Attracting Audiences with Art that Excites

An original public art program helps honor the history of a place, enhances wellbeing, creates buzz, and even increases revenue for nearby businesses. Site-specific art in particular can amplify these benefits, supporting navigation and intuitive wayfinding while prompting viewers to experience spaces with enlightened perspectives. 

Our NINE dot ARTS team helps clients capitalize on these benefits while overseeing all public art requirements. We manage everything from artist selections and contract administration to facilitating decision-making and buy-in from artists, municipal leaders, and other stakeholder groups – culminating in a high-quality art experience for public benefit.
