Art for everyone.

Sensitivity to the region, its people, and their values is keenly important when selecting art for public settings. We believe that public works should evoke a sense of “ahh” and beauty rather than confusion. For the sake of our fellow man, art in public spaces should make people feel good.

Case Study |

City of Tualatin

Photos of the City of Tualatin Art Entry Monument show the process from schematic to completion. The hand rendered sketch designed by Janelle Baglien won Studio Art Direct the award to create this $375K art installation. Our work included a wetland pond, 20,000 pound carved rock with footings, and an 18’ high custom commissioned bronze sculpture by R. Caswell. Studio Art Direct coordinated three artists, civil and structural engineers, contractors, and the city commission to a successful installation that culminated in a daring one-night street closure. The installation speaks to the city’s wetlands and shared leadership as symbolized by the geese.
