Project Scoping

In collaboration with each client and stakeholder, 4Culture lays a foundation for success by assessing opportunities and resources. We can help maximize the best locations and scope for artwork through budget setting, artist selection process, and timeline development.

Art Plans

Art plans are a road map. They provide a framework and strategy to guide a project, program, or even a city over many years. The planning process is invaluable in building advocacy for public art, fostering new ways of thinking, and supporting communities.

Artist Selection

Getting the right artist is the key to success. 4Culture offers management for every stage of the selection process from writing and issuing the Call for Artists, to application processing via our custom online application system, and facilitation of artist selection panels and interviews.

Design Development

From the artist’s initial impressions to a final design package, this is both an exciting and vulnerable phase of any public artwork. 4Culture can facilitate this process to ensure that your mission is reflected in the final product, that the artist has the support, and that the artwork is approved by permitting agencies.

Fabrication and Installation Oversight

Our project managers have unparalleled experience with integration of art into all types of construction. During studio fabrication and on-site installation, 4Culture can navigate a successful collaboration between the artist, fabricators, and general contractors to ensure that the artwork as designed gets built.
