Who we are

The Power of Placemaking

We believe that how we experience a space influences how we interact with it. Experiences shape the way we…

care for,
take pride in,
and evolve

…our neighborhoods, communities, and cities. 

That’s why NINE dot ARTS leverages art and culture to transform spaces into one-of-a-kind experiences that bring value to developers and make a positive social impact. Creative placemaking that boosts business and builds community? That’s what we do.

NINE dot ARTS began with a vision

Co-founders Martha McGee and Molly Casey began NINE dot ARTS in 2009 with the vision of building a forward-thinking company that both curates incredible art experiences and advocates for art and artists. Since then, we have completed nearly 1,000 real estate projects across 39 states and five countries, generating more than $50M in revenue for the creative economy.

Today, our company includes over 30 specialists with expertise in:

  • Art curation, acquisition, and installation
  • Strategic consulting, 
  • Urban planning, 
  • Community engagement, 
  • Project management, 
  • Marketing, 
  • Client success, 
  • and more. 

Unlike art vendors or sole proprietors, we leverage our team of specialists to oversee the entire art experience, from vision development to art installation. And no matter the industry or location of our projects, we proactively engage with the community to understand local culture and source artists who reflect it – telling a compelling visual story that brings the space to life.

The NINE dot ARTS Difference

As a partner in placemaking, we help our clients transform spaces into one-of-a-kind experiences through the power of original art. Here’s how:

Adele Grundies

Chief Operating Officer

Read more
What does a COO do? Workflow improvements, project analysis and capacity planning, technology/systems integration, client budget management and tracking, financial projections, troubleshooting, and team coaching. And that’s just Monday.   When your company is entering into its tenth year in business, it’s time to bring in someone to make things run smoother and help our team deliver our work more efficiently. So, we went out and found Adele. Now, our only regret is that we wish we would have found her a lot sooner! Adele is a veteran of the education non-profit consulting world, where she managed teams of both client service and technology staff and worked with clients around the country to deliver operational solutions. She sees the big picture, but loves digging into the details. She thinks problems are just challenges begging for a solution. And she’s equally as comfortable looking at numbers and charts on a dashboard as she is talking about art with a client over coffee. Left brain. Right brain. She brings both sides to her job every day.   Adele endures a grueling commute to our office from one (1) block away, where she lives with her family and teaches her three-year-old daughter lyrics to Queen songs. That makes sense because Operations is no bed of roses, no pleasure cruise. It’s a challenge before the whole human race. But with Adele, we ain’t gonna lose.   Adele supports the arts community by being a member of Denver Art Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art, visiting cool new installations around town, and attending the Sundance Film Festival every year.

Curatorial team

Denise Joseph

Director of Curatorial

Read more
We found Denise in Chicago, longing for not only a change in her career, but also a change of address. And we were more than happy to help her with both. With her roots in marketing and client service, combined with her Master’s degree in Art History, Theory and Criticism from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), Denise provides a very unique perspective for our clients. She feels strongly that there is magic to be made when art and marketing are brought together with thoughtful planning and a keen eye for the visual expression of business goals. We love that, because we agree with her that marketing and art are both part of the same story that communicates a vision, a purpose, and a brand. When Denise isn’t working at the crossroads of art and business, you might find her at a remote crossroads somewhere in a foreign land. She’s traveled to 25 countries on 4 continents and is busy making plans for more. It’s that kind of passion for exploring new territory and experiencing diverse cultures that makes Denise a natural curator. We’re thrilled that her explorations landed her on our team. Denise supports the art community by purchasing art from local artists when traveling, curating exhibitions based on trends she has observed, managing an Instagram account that increases visibility for artists, and being a member and volunteer panel speaker for CAA (College Art Association).

Hannah Penny

associate curator

Read more
You might call Hannah our resident nomad. She has traveled around the U.S., sampling different places to live like some people sample ice cream flavors before committing to their cone. But if you were to ask her where she’s from she would say New York, so we’ll go with that. Graduating from the Art Academy of Cincinnati in 2011 with a Bachelors in Fine Arts Painting and a Minor in Art History, Hannah interned at the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center in Covington, KY as the assistant to the Gallery Director. Upon arriving in Denver in 2017 to sample the flavor of Colorado, Hannah found NINE dot ARTS through an artist friend and has never looked back. She has quickly become an art consulting superstar in her role as Associate Curator, taking clients through projects like an expert tour guide. Hannah loves working in the art business because she’s able to use her creativity and passion for art on a daily basis, while collaborating with artists to share their talents with people who might not normally encounter their work. It’s obvious she loves art because she recently graduated from the Leadership Arts program provided by the CBCA. It’s a really cool, nine-month program that “equips and inspires professionals to be effective nonprofit board members and arts advocates.” It’s the only program of its kind in the region focused on arts and culture and it’s an honor to be accepted. Way to go, Hannah! Outside of the office, she occasionally paints abstract oil paintings, loves to cook, attends lots of live music around town, and is the proud mom of Rose the Adorable Dog.   Hannah supports the art community by: being a member at the MCA, going to art openings, buying local art for her own (very small) personal collection, and visiting the studios of artists to learn about their art and provide advice.

Valeria began her work at NINE dot ARTS as the Gallery Manager for Union Hall, and continues to expand her curatorial ability. When Valeria isn’t creating amazing art collections you might find her rock climbing, caring for her indoor houseplant jungle, hanging out with her cat Coco (who is 85% dog), or cooking Palestinian food. Valeria’s favorite part of working in the art world is elevating and creating a platform for underrepresented voices. Her passion in the art world is curating shows featuring Latinx artists who work with themes of social or environmental justice and/or decolonization.

Arian Hornsby

Associate Curator

Arian is our first Atlanta-based Associate Curator who brings with her over 10 years of experience in the art and design world. She graduated in 2013 with a BA in Studio Arts, where classes in graphic design, book making, life drawing, and oil and acrylic painting informed her professional career working as a painting instructor, virtual interior designer, gallery associate, and art consultant. In addition to curating exceptional art experiences for our clients, Arian creates original acrylic on canvas artworks, indoor murals, and tiny art (check her out here!). She also enjoys documenting the artistic process to inform and inspire others to create unique works of their own. Arian’s curating interests include merging modern elements with traditional art and design techniques for a fresh and engaging contrast. Arian believes art and expression are important aspects of the human experience, each helping us to understand and appreciate our differences in pursuit of a more united and fulfilled world for all. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Arian has spent her life living, working, learning, and creating within 25 square miles of her hometown. While she loves Atlanta, she also enjoys traveling to experience new cultures, foods, and artists. In fact, she makes it a point to visit a new gallery or museum every time she leaves Georgia. Outside of curating and making her own artwork, Arian enjoys being with her cat, Nacho Mama, as well as reading, biking, movie watching, people watching, beach bumming, and daydreaming. We are thrilled to have her on our team, bringing such dreams to life for our clients through the power of original art.

Erin Bowman

Associate Curator

Pop quiz: What do you get when you take someone who has five brothers and sisters, grew up playing sports, and was exposed to art at a young age by visiting museums such as Tate Modern, Uffizi Gallery, and MOMA? We’ll tell you what you get: a fearless, jump-in-and-get-things-done, reliable teammate who loves art and being around others who enjoy it as much as she does.   Erin attended the University of St. Andrews in Scotland where she not only played on the first women’s football team, but also scored her Master’s degree in Museum and Gallery Studies. After a couple of stops at Clyfford Still Museum and Hudson Gardens in the Denver area, she landed on our team where she creates order out of chaos and gets to witness “art’s transformative power of both the viewer’s psyche and the space it inhabits.” Well said, Erin. We’re glad you’re inhabiting our space.   Erin supports the local arts community by volunteering with Denver Film, being a loyal member of Clyfford Still Museum, and attending lots of gallery openings and museum exhibitions.

Stephanie Moore

Director of Operations

Stephanie joins NINE dot ARTS with 13 years of project management experience in the development and construction industry, including several years as a commercial property manager. In addition to being an owner’s representative for the construction of multi-family and office buildings, Stephanie has opened three restaurants for  a developer and has worked for a commercial general contractor and a commercial playground firm. The common thread throughout her career has been her passion for making things work. According to Stephanie, no matter the system, process, or problem – there’s always a solution! So, you can imagine our delight when Stephanie became our Director of Operations, overseeing everything from sourcing suppliers to project budgeting and reporting. But what made us really excited was Stephanie’s unique background in the arts, which she claims has been her secret weapon in several positions. Though it may not have led to a studio or teaching role, Stephanie’s degree in fine arts gave her a nuanced approach to problem solving and creative thinking, making her an excellent arts administrator and project manager.  Outside her home office in Charlotte, North Carolina, Stephanie enjoys hiking nearby mountains and beaches. She also reclaimed an old hobby during the pandemic and has since become an avid “mini-maker,” creating all sorts of miniature pieces for dollhouses. (Check her out on Instagram @shelter_dollhouse if you’re interested!) Stephanie supports the arts community by visiting galleries (and trying very hard not to touch the art) and continuously adding to her vibrant local pottery collection.

India Stevens, CAPM

Project Manager

Read more
It was love that brought India from Atlanta to Denver–and we’re glad she made that move! This Georgia State University graduate adapted skills honed in an Event and Meeting Management career to benefit the NINE dot ARTS’ Acquisitions team where her organization and systems management shines. She also completed her Project Management Institute Exam in 2022, becoming a Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM). In 2023, India received her certificate in Leading Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion from Northwestern University. She enjoys working in the arts because of the varied stories and experiences that artwork brings to different types of people. A perfect day for India might include candle making, Vinyasa yoga, preparing her famous parmesan-encrusted salmon with her fiancé, petting her Great Dane (left-handedly), or wondering if she’ll ever enjoy anything as fabulous as Cami’s chocolate cake. (Which is an admittedly unusual thought for a person who doesn’t like chocolate!)

Raquel Mideau

Director of Marketing

Read more
They say advertising is a mix of art and science, a Yin-Yang profession where teams of creative minds take hard business data and market insights and transform them into ideas that must break through and resonate with diverse audiences.   After spending the last decade+ as an account director for a boutique marketing firm and serving clients around the globe, Raquel Mideau is the embodiment of that. The agency life gave Raquel the chance to team with a colorful collection of artists and writers as they helped solve all types of business challenges from Georgia to Germany. It also helped hone her command of the modern marketing tactics and classic marketing principles she’s using to bring our mission to more companies that love and value art’s impact the way we do. For Raquel, her role as Marketing Manager at NINE dot ARTS delivers a professional symmetry she can’t resist – she’s someone who’s always loved the art of marketing, and now, gets to love the marketing of art.   A first generation American born in New Jersey to a pair of proud and brave Dominican parents, Raquel has made Atlanta her home for most of her adult life. She, her husband, and young son actively enjoy and support the city’s vibrant progressivism – but, she grew up and graduated from college in Florida, so the beach is her true love and where she goes to refuel her spirit.

Janet Farias

Executive Assistant

Janet was born in Los Angeles and moved to Colorado as a child when her parents fell in love with the state. She has always been creative and has always loved art and the stories it can interpret. Working as an Executive Assistant at an amazing architectural and interior design firm gave Janet a newfound passion for interior design.
