The Story

With its move out of the Gates Company headquarters, the Gates Family Foundation wanted its new office to exemplify its mission and reflect its investments in projects and organizations which have a meaningful impact and enhance the quality of life in Colorado.
This brand-focused art installation tells the story of Colorado’s Native American heritage, natural assets, Western roots, and a promising future in education through diverse artistic materials and subject matter that incorporate whimsy, humor, and history to directly engage the audience. Land protection and conservation remain one of the Foundation’s core initiatives, and the reinvented and artistic portrayals of Colorado serve as daily reminders of the importance of these natural resources. With imagery rooted in Colorado’s deep western history and changing urban environment, our art collection curated for the Gates Family Foundation serves as a daily reminder of their mission. This exceptional workspace also proves how smart design and a thought-provoking art collection can transform an environment into an experience!

Our ability to create authentic experiences for our guests is a key differentiator against our competition, and the art program that NINE dot ARTS created is a prime example. Much of the art comes from current Boston University (BU) students and alumni, which really connects with our guests. As a result, we continue to grow our share of business from BU.”
