CURATORS BRING IT TO LIFE.

Creating Art experiences

From hotels, multi-family residential properties, and offices to large-scale, mixed use developments and interactive public art installations, NINE dot ARTS leverages the power of original art to transform ordinary places into one-of-a-kind experiences. How? Keep reading.

Consulting and Master Plans

We don’t always curate art for clients. Sometimes we’re brought in to create strategic plans, including:

  • Art master plans for new developments, communities, municipal districts, and cities
  • Strategic art plans for public spaces, such as airports or community venues
  • Art and programming plans for non-profits and art exhibition spaces

INSPIRATION in four steps

Inspiration in four steps

WE ALWAYS START WITH A VISION.

THE RESULT IS ALWAYS UNIQUE.

We're your partners in creating an experience that connects your audience to your brand story. We believe art should engage. Art should provoke thought and dialogue. Art should create moments of discovery. And most of all, art should help turn your space into a one-of-a-kind experience. From Vision to Engagement, we'll guide you through a very collaborative process.
STEP 01

VISION & ROADMAP

We connect your unique story, brand, and specific goals to visual ideas and concepts. How? Through an interactive Vision Development workshop. Then, we map your budget to a timeline and deliver a detailed and prioritized art location plan. It’s the critical first step in finding the perfect art for your space.

What We Deliver:

  • Concept boards
  • Curatorial statement
  • Budget allocation by location and priority
  • Art acquisition schedule
STEP 02

Research & Curate

Understanding how individuals move through and interact with a space is a key component to planning engaging art experiences. That’s why we partner with architects, designers, and contractors to dig deep and learn about your space. Then, our curators tap into our database and network of nearly 10,000 artists worldwide to find and present recommended artworks and finalize an engaging art experience.

What We Deliver:

  • Updated location plans
  • Art collection presentations
  • Commission concept review
STEP 03

ART ACQUISITION

Our Art Acquisition team brings everything together through skillful negotiation and purchasing of all approved art. We carefully manage the project timeline and keep our clients on track while moving forward to framing and shipping.

What We Deliver:

  • Acquisition of all art and framing
  • Updated timeline
  • Art coordination and commission implementation
STEP 04

INSTALL & ENGAGE

The art experience becomes reality through skilled installation, carrying forward the plans created in collaboration with our clients. Our team continues to work with our clients after installation, training client team members with marketing materials, offering tips and best practices for tours of the art collection, and presenting opportunities for further engagement like opening events and artist lectures.

What We Deliver:

  • Installed art experience
  • Art identification labels
  • Audience engagement materials

“Within hours of our new, local art collection being installed, we had guests asking about it. The artwork gets people to stop. They really look and think about it. Our collection has been a huge guest engagement point for the hotel and truly highlights Austin’s creative community.”

- James Prendeville, General Manager, Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Austin

“NINE dot ARTS continues to exceed my expectations. As curators, their ability to identify and source artworks that are immersive and experiential has helped make our property a unique destination.”

- Chad Mcwhinney, CEO and Co-founder, Mcwhinney

NINE dot ARTS did an amazing job finding pieces that tell a story and communicate who we are as a philanthropic organization. The art in our office is a source of joy and pride, and is an essential part of the character of a space that is used by many, many community organizations.”

- Thomas A. Gougeon, President, Gates Family Foundation

“The NINE dot ARTS discovery process made creating a custom art collection, a seemingly daunting task, simple and fun. They truly understood our business and how to visually express what we do in unique and meaningful ways. Their knowledge of the art industry combined with their experience and countless local and national connections are extremely impressive.”

- Jenna Samek, Director Corporate Communications, Fourpoint Energy

“NINE dot ARTS was great to work with and made the art selection fun while capturing our story. They captured not only our image, culture and diversity but also those things that are outside the box that make the project feel right.

- Gary Branch, Director of Construction, Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children

Our ability to create authentic experiences for our guests is a key differentiator against our competition, and the art program that NINE dot ARTS created is a prime example. Much of the art comes from current Boston University (BU) students and alumni, which really connects with our guests. As a result, we continue to grow our share of business from BU.”

- Adam Sperling, General Manager, Hotel Commonwealth

Martha Weidmann

CEO & Co-Founder

When you’re born and raised in Mobile, Alabama, genteel grace and charm are just a natural byproduct of your upbringing. But Martha’s deep understanding of the art business and tenacious drive for business success are something all her own. As our CEO and Co-Founder of NINE dot ARTS, Martha oversees business planning, company finances, marketing and sales, team development, and is basically our head cheerleader and evangelist to the world. Martha left Alabama at 18 to expand her horizons and graduated from Colorado State University with a dual major – Communications and Fine Arts – to launch her journey. With her two diplomas in hand, she started her career with Walker Fine Art gallery in Denver, then moved on to the most prestigious art consulting firm (at the time) in the region, McGrath and Braun, from which NINE dot ARTS was born. Martha loves the business of art and finds tremendous satisfaction in helping new and emerging artists discover that you can actually get paid for your talent. She also loves using both sides of her brain on a daily basis, which can mean touring an amazing new NINE dot ARTS art experience in the morning and reviewing equally inspiring spreadsheets in the afternoon. When she’s not bouncing from meeting to meeting around our office, talking to movers and shakers in the art world, or giving high fives (with a handmade artistic hand, naturally) to team members, you might find her shopping at estate sales, urban hiking, listening to podcasts and audiobooks, or making cool stuff with her three art loving children.

Martha supports the art community by: currently serving on the Board of the Colorado Business Committee for the Arts and serving as Executive Director for Union Hall. Past experiences include lecturer for the Americans for the Arts conference in San Francisco on Art & Placemaking, serving on the Planning Committee for Stuart Semple’s Happy City, speaking on the CBCA Arts and Real Estate Panel, lecturer for the artist education series, Moxie U, and lecturer on Artist professional development for the Pueblo Economic Development Council.
