Corporate: San Francisco Investment Firm

A San Francisco financial firm wanted to define itself by its location and history. The initial collection was primarily antique views of the city. We expanded the collection to include vintage and contemporary photographs and contemporary fine art paintings relating to the sea, the Bay and San Francisco. To address the firm’s business, we created a collection consisting of antique United States currency plus ethnic artifacts used as currency in foreign countries. Finally, we commissioned several artworks. One is a 4 x 12 foot collage of photographs by Richard Ross of bank notes, stocks and currency from around the world. A wall-mounted glass sculpture by internationally acclaimed contemporary artist William Carlson reflects upon the sailors and dockworkers, an integral part of San Francisco commerce.
