On the Boards: Bethesda Multifamily

A few images from a proposal we just sent out! The space is super modern, with a hint of an organic/textural theme to it. We put together the below concepts keyed off the finishes.

More Than Just Rectangles and Squares

A challenge we run into on many projects is how to artistically address large walls without breaking the bank. One way we've found is to incorporate artwork that is dynamic and made in individual parts or sections to limit the amount of materials being used. In this installation, for a Tysons VA government consulting firm, we retained an artist to create a custom composition of screenprinted, wood mounted prints to a large feature wall in the client's conference center. The installation took a full day, with the artist carefully aligning the circles vertically.

Bioscience Artwork

Artists Circle has been retained by a large Montgomery County biologics R&D firm to install artwork in several buildings across their campus. While we do love to install beautiful artwork, a good portion of our time is spent on project management. In this case, taking several thousand pieces of art and determining how to spread them across buildings with different design schemes in a way that feels cohesive.

Every Day This Place Looks Different!

Jack is planning a timelapse camera setup to show you how much the Artists Circle gallery changes every day: new art/packages arrive, we change which artwork is hanging, build models for projects, move around big sculptures and wall art... AND.. assemble dozens of easels for an upcoming "Evening of Artwork and Conversation", a networking event we are helping one of our clients organize.
