Who doesn’t love going to the movies? Hot buttered popcorn, soda, and candy. The dim of the lights. Cozying up to a loved one. The glare of the big screen. I captured the feel of the theater by placing art in the 7th Floor Art Gallery at Nokomis Square Cooperative, senior living apartments in Minneapolis. The theme this year was “Cinema and Theaters” and I found the perfect combo of posters, photography from local theaters, a wall sculpture, and movie theater wall art to set the movie-loving mood.

The project included consulting and curating art pieces, making sure each piece was securely installed, and added professional tags with title and artist name. I worked closely with the┬áDecorative Enhancement Committee and the head of the committee, Maureen Day, to make the final art selection decisions. You’ll see a selection of the pieces we installed below. “It’s a retrospective of old and new. We received many compliments because it was, for most, like ‘a joy-filled walk down memory lane’,” said Day about the project this year.

This was the third year that we placed art for the cooperative in partnership with the Decorative Enhancement Committee – Check out the colorful curations we placed on the first floor in 2017.

If you’re looking to make an impact with art at your residence or business, I can help – contact me for a consultation.

Warm regards,
