Rockville Fun and Whimsy

Many developers and property owners seek the professional services of Artists Circle for exterior and public art projects. Finding an artist who is capable of creating such artwork isn't as easy as doing a quick Google search. We vet artists to make sure they can not only meet the vision and budget parameters of our clients, but to make sure they also have the technical and engineering know-how to understand how to create attachment/anchor points for freestanding or wall-mounted sculpture. Over the years, we have heard so many horror stories of proposed artwork not coming to fruition - or a poorly installed execution of a concept - because of these logistics.

This is an example of a smaller-scale exterior project we worked on. The client provided site renderings and feedback as to what they wanted: color and something dynamic and fun for passersby to enjoy. Artists Circle proposed several artists for the site and ultimately settled on an artist from Boise, Idaho who works in metal, with a long lasting, weather-impervious powder coating applied as a finish.
