Unlike art galleries or brokers with limited inventories, NINE dot ARTS works with artists from around the world to help clients fill varied spaces with murals, multimedia installations, and more. From hotels, multifamily residential properties, and offices to large-scale, mixed-use developments and interactive public art installations, our custom art collections create a one-of-a-kind sense of place. And our tried and true creative process ensures cohesion with the property’s architecture and design, producing a satisfying and seamless experience that keeps people coming back.
NINE dot ARTS develops community art plans (traditionally called “art master plans”) for large-scale developments, municipalities, cities, and communities big and small. We leverage art and culture to uplift local assets and amplify the heart and soul of a place – its people.
From community engagement to financing and implementation, our community art plans have helped public and private sector clients develop memorable, art-filled destinations that produce social and economic benefits for years to come.
Through unique art activations, we help clients increase their brand awareness and elevate their properties both during and after development. Art activations can alleviate construction fatigue, engage the surrounding community, and generate goodwill and good press for the property.
Our creative process makes art curation a collaborative, efficient, and enjoyable working experience. With comprehensive project management from start to finish, we do the heavy lifting to give you peace of mind. And by starting early, we help create spaces for bold, iconic artwork that would be impossible anywhere else.
From vision development to art installation and everything in between, our proven process culminates in a one-of-a-kind art experience delivered on time and on budget.
We connect your story, brand, and goals to visual ideas and concepts. We map your budget to a timeline and deliver a detailed art typology and location plan.
We partner with developers, designers, and architects to dig deep and understand the space. Our curators then research and present recommended artwork and finalize the art collection.
Our art acquisition team brings everything together through the skillful negotiation and purchasing of all approved art. We carefully manage the project timeline to stay on schedule and on budget while moving forward to framing and shipping.
The art experience comes to life through careful coordination with our clients, artists, and installers. Our team provides complimentary art labels to support identification and engagement.
“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.”– Adam Sperling, General Manager, Hotel Commonwealth
