Public Art Installation | Upfest

Public Art Installation

Public Art Installations can be some of the most complex projects we’re involved in, with multiple stakeholders, public safety and creative processes we can bridge the gap between the commissioning party and the artist. Our technical team will not only work within the public considerations but also support the artist in bringing their vision to reality whether 2D, 3D or multiple sensory.
