Choosing art for your office, retail or hospitality space, or commercial or residential real estate can be a daunting task. Beyond simple personal taste and an eye for color, choosing front-facing or public art requires a lot of logistics and know-how. It’s everything from how different pieces will work in the same space, to how much sunlight a space gets, to synthesizing your brand and/or values within a collection of art pieces, and so much more. Art consultants are uniquely trained to notice all the details and listen closely to what you need and want, ultimately delivering a personalized and perfectly tailored selection of art pieces.
IPaintMyMind’s Art Consulting Services are all-inclusive. We spend time getting to know your business, space, and unique needs, and getting a sense of what your aesthetic tastes are like. We offer you a customized recommendation in your price range that can be anywhere from an installation to a sculpture to a mural, commissioned paintings, or a collection of prints. After you give your okay, we handle transportation and installation. It’s hassle-free and tailored to fit you.
Plus, your new art will give back to the community, by funding our unique arts programming at Chicago Public Schools. You’ll be able to know that your new artwork and refreshed space have also created tons of real-world social impact. Arts education is a powerful and door-opening experience for students and young minds, but so often the arts are neglected and underfunded. This is definitely the case in the Chicago Public Schools system, and your contribution through hiring IPMM to be your art consultant will help power high-quality no-cost arts programs for underserved schools.
So What’s Included In Your Initial Art Consulting Intake Call?
To give you a sense of what the art consulting process will look like, here’s a breakdown of our art consulting intake call. It’s the very beginning of the road for your new art, and is where we start our brainstorming and calculations about the kind of art that’s perfect for you.
Once you have registered for your call, we’ll send you a confirmation email. The day of, expect our curators to call you at your selected time to gather information. Here’s some of the questions that our curators usually ask, so you can start thinking about them yourself.
Thinking About Your Space
What kind of space do you have? Is it an open floor-plan office, the lobby and hallways of a residential building, an intimate sushi restaurant, or a cozy hotel? What floor are you on? Is it a multifunctional building? Do you own or rent? Is it a shared space?
Light Makes All The Difference
How much light does your space get? Is there lots of direct sunlight? How many hours a day do you get direct sunlight? Which way does your windows face? What kind of lighting fixtures do you have? What kind of lightbulbs do you use?
