Why do we have art, why do we make art, and why is it important? A brief Google search demonstrates that these questions are burning holes in many a human mind. At APS, we’re contemplating the same thing as we’ve recently added Public Art Installation to our Service Menu. We aren’t just into artistic displays and custom fabrication installs because they look cool, though. We strive to build dreams and meet the needs of our commercial clients, and we’ve gotten nerdy and collected some compelling wisdom that supports art as a basic human need.
Art itself is a developmental need for us all on biological, educational, and social levels. APS is striving to offer solutions to these needs in our local communities with the implementation of our multi-trade construction services, and we want to work with others who want to do the same. Use art to tell staff, clients, shoppers, and passersby who you are and what you offer, and fulfill on a commitment to better the community. Who doesn’t want to make the world a better place?
Do you have plans for interactive sculpture, art installation, custom fabricated visual or furniture installation, or even jungle gyms on your commercial property or public property? We are available to bid on projects that are being actively planned, and can also collaborate with artists and teams in the concept phase to get the design down on paper plans, get regulatory approvals, and get your project made! Contact us for professional collaboration in any phase of the design, permitting, building, and/or installation of your vision.
