The art consultant will use their knowledge of art and design to select artwork that reflects the aesthetic tastes of our corporate and healthcare clients. This person will source artwork from reliable vendors and commission work from artists of all levels (local, national, and international) to offer a desirable range of artwork for all projects while maintaining the clients’ budget.
Consultants must have a refined attention to detail and be able to collaborate with clients and communicate effectively. They must also maintain positive relationships with artists, galleries, and other resources in the industry to stay up to date with the newest trends in the art world and keep their designs fresh. This employee will work with a range of collaborators including interior designers, architects, and other decision-making clients. They must have the ability to dress accordingly and deliver polished design presentations to clients of all levels (including C-level executives). Availability for occasional local and national travel is expected. At times (rarely) trips will extend over a period of several days.
This person must be able to work independently and collaboratively within an existing team of consultants to maintain a positive creative environment for achieving the highest level of client satisfaction. The consultant will need to provide support to senior art consultants and assist with managing projects from beginning to end (including drafting proposals, creating spreadsheets, selecting images, contacting vendors, and commissioning original artwork). After training, this person will be expected to manage their own projects independently. Candidates must have excellent communication skills (both written and verbal) and will need to be extremely organized to manage multiple projects simultaneously and meet all deadlines without exception.
Must have a bachelor’s degree in a visually creative field or documented professional experience in fine art and/or design (degrees in Interior Design or Fine Art preferred). Full proficiency in MS Office Suite and Adobe Creative Suite is required. Graphic design skills are needed for drafting design presentations that are on brand in addition to creating RFP responses that are of the highest quality. An ability to read and understand floor plans and elevations is preferred, but we will train, if necessary.
