As NINE dot ARTS’ Director of Client Success, Andrea Barry knows firsthand the tremendous social and financial value that a well-planned art program can bring to a development. But she also knows the risks associated with doing it wrong. By shortchanging art and culture in a project, Andrea explains, developers can waste time and money, misuse their resources, and reduce the value of expensive investments like architecture and design. But in this lesson-loaded episode, she addresses how to mitigate such risks and maximize your project budget through thoughtful placemaking solutions prioritized early on. She even shares how to leverage the art program during your project’s feasibility stage through construction and well-beyond, as well as how to scale your impact across properties, verticals, and regions.
