For the past year, Mazzoni Center staff have worked closely with Heather Gibson. Both Gibson and her staff members from Sentry Arts have served pro bono on our Arts, Archives, and Building Committee to build standards and guidelines for how we tell Mazzoni Center’s story and the story of the HIV and LGBTQ movements in Philadelphia through our internal physical space in our new building.
As you might already know, Mazzoni Center is a proud Charter Member of the Independence Business Alliance and is the region’s preeminent health and wellness organization for LGBTQ people and those living with HIV.
Our experiences working with Sentry Arts have been an overwhelmingly positive, productive experience. Over the course of several months, Gibson and her team have provided many services including advising the Interim CEO, Steve Glassman, and the Arts, Archives, and Building Committee on the following:
• Artwork and graphics location plan
• Draft art and graphics standards for the internal spaces
• Art curation for public spaces
• Signage recommendations and purchase support
• Affording the Mazzoni Center Gibson’s corporate discounts for artwork purchases

Heather and her team turn the value of walls and corridors into inspiration with their use of art from local artists to motivational words from a company's founder. They can add beauty and worth to what were merely blank spaces.

Heather and her team helped us with large-scale graphics for our new office. Her service was excellent and she helped us find creative ideas that worked in our budget.
Heather and her team were an absolute delight to work with. At the outset of our project, Heather met with our design team, took the time to understand our firm’s culture, and came back with a proposed design that has been installed and is now receiving rave reviews. After completing the main job for our new space, we felt that we needed a bit more artwork in the core of our space. Once again, sensitive to our culture and our budget, phase 2 went beautifully. She has a great talent (and even more patience).

I’ve known Heather Gibson since she handled the purchase, deployment and maintenance of the artwork for Rhone Poulenc Rorer’s new headquarters that went live in 1990. When Wyeth bought that same building in 2000, Heather was my choice to help us with the artwork and historic artifact collection for Wyeth. It was an enormous project that encompassed the purchase of new and used artwork, the re-use of existing artwork and the plan and implementation of all deployment. She also spearheaded our efforts to collect historical artifacts that were meaningful to Wyeth and to display and deploy them throughout the facility. Her high degree of energy, professionalism, enthusiasm, and intellect are unmatched. She earned a high level of trust based on her extraordinary abilities. I would hire her again in a minute.
We value Heather's expertise and integrity and seek her help with our most difficult art installation challenges. She consistently creates dynamic and clever solutions, mindful of our budget constraints, and makes sure the job gets done. Her personal touch gives us much appreciated confidence, and we are always proud of the final installation work. She is a thorough professional....delightful to work with.
