We’re proud advocates for the power of art in public spaces and we’ve delivered some of London’s most important commissions over the past decade. Our technical expertise is matched by our commitment to the social impact art brings to the public arena. We work with world-recognised artists to imagine and deliver art for all. We’re recognised leaders in the field and understand that arts and culture are central to placemaking and community building. Our clients share this vision and want to make a difference - delivering social value is at the heart of what we do, whether it’s temporary or permanent, online or on-site. Public space is changing and we’re delivering great art for great places.
CAS are adept in teasing out the client’s
requirements, sourcing high quality artists that will be able to respond to the
vision and values of the client. They organised an artists’ competition,
shortlisting and selection, and then worked with the donor, client and selected
artist – Mark Wallinger in this case – skilfully mediating the different
priorities of each of the parties to achieve an outstanding result.
