When NINE dot ARTS opened its doors in 2009 (just one door in a closet-sized office rented at an architecture firm, to be exact), our co-founders Martha and Molly had a vision for a new kind of art consulting firm. Their vision was to build a company that not only delivers thought-provoking art that engages audiences, but is also embedded deep into the art community itself and serves as an advocate for both art and artists. They wanted to prove that you can grow a successful, for-profit arts sector business while displaying non-profit, mission-based values. And they wanted to work with clients who share their appreciation for the power of art to eliminate the ordinary and transform spaces.
Today, with lots of doors and an entire staff formally trained in the history, theory, and curation of art, that vision is not only intact, it’s thriving. Because while we’re in the business of curating narratives and creating art experiences for our clients, we find just as much satisfaction in finding new and emerging artists and helping them gain visibility for their work. Art helps everybody win.
Allow us to introduce ourselves.
