|This large-scale corporate art consulting project presented a unique opportunity and challenge. Establishing and growing an art acquisition program for a large, multi-faceted global company meant that many factors needed to be considered when identifying the company’s aesthetic goals and direction.
Sentry Arts provided collection management services for the company’s corporate headquarters, which comprises over 2,000 works of art. Services included a full rotation of the art program, two full years after installation was completed at S & P’s Two Penn Plaza office in New York.
Sentry Arts assisted S & P Global with the art programs in three of its Midtown New York locations (including the company headquarters), as well as several satellite locations in New Jersey, Ohio, and Philadelphia. The focus of the acquisition process was contemporary realism and included artists from throughout the United States who worked in a variety of styles and mediums, from oil paintings to mosaic to fiber.
Sentry Arts worked closely with S & P to complete a full inventory of their art program data, which was integrated into their proprietary asset management system.
Sentry Arts also performed a market evaluation of large portions of S & P’s collection to assess value and aid in collection management.
Sentry Arts assisted S & P in Columbus, Ohio to commission portraits of 100 leading educators from around the world.
