Art that works.

A different kind of art consultant.

Art Works Consultants provides art planning, procurement, selection and support services to clients in the public and private sectors.

We are unique in the art consulting market in that we are partnered with a licensed architectural practice, Design Workshop Architects. To you, the client, this means that our experience in the management of high-stakes, complex projects can be brought to bear on your art needs.

Both AWC and DWA subscribe to a highly organized, client focused process of research, designed to immerse us in your needs so that we can provide customized services and an agile response to your needs, whatever the scale.

We work where you are.

Art goes into spaces. We understand spaces and how to work in them. We’re knowledgeable, intelligent, practical and highly technically proficient. We are comfortable working in the open world of the public and commercial sectors, or in the quiet and discrete world of your personal collection.

We’ll help to define your requirements through a detailed discovery process. We have a great eye for good opportunities and surprising interventions, and are great listeners. Our process is methodical and organized; we’ll bring you budgets, schedules and specialist advice to help make sure that your requirements are fully understood and met throughout your process.

Please note that Art Works Consultants does not provide architectural services, but Design Workshop Architects Inc. does. Our services at AWC relate to art only and are explicitly non-architectural in nature; please visit the DWA site at www.dwa-arc.com for information about architectural services.

Smart art.
