Public Art is art for the public. Art in public space.
It’s art in any form with the purpose of being exhibited and accessed by the public.
ZEBRA believes that public art plays a key role in shaping and defining places within our cities, our communities.
Why does that matter? Because art has the power to make any place more memorable, attractive, and it connects us.
ZEBRA works with patrons and artists to put the right art, in the right place, for the right reasons.
Because we get it. We get your corporate lingo, we get your creative lingo. We are the bridge of bringing these two worlds together.
ZEBRA offers art services from curating exhibits, producing art events to taking charge of all stages of public art installations, including creating and designing competitions with well-matched artists.
We are very proud of our work with young, emerging artists and bringing their creative value and solutions to organizations looking for innovative space ideas.
ZEBRA believes that there is power in partnership. What does this mean? That goals can be reached more quickly, more efficiently and with greater impact by a team with the diversity of knowledge and skills to fully address the challenge.
Our background includes deep experience in the world of real estate, architecture, design, project management and event planning. We understand the how and why art comes into your business model, and we use that understanding as a context for all of our proposed solutions. It’s our way of ensuring that we speak your language.
ZEBRA creates value through targeted curation – servicing the needs of businesses by guiding the creativity.
We engage processes that brings the worlds of creativity and commerce to enhance the experience of place through art.

Link to interview with Zebra:
AN ARTFUL NIGHT
for GMP Richardson
Zebra curated and hosted an artful event for the company. The evening was an experience for the employees, who enjoyed a taste of the art world, and had the opportunity to discover their own creativity and the artist within themselves.
The evening comprised of two parts: a talk and an interactive part.
Vladimir Spicanovic, Dean of the Faculty of Art at OCAD University gave a brilliant talk titled “Navigating Contemporary Art”. Topics discussed were What is contemporary art? values, function(s), diversity, interdisciplinarity; Navigation as a metaphor: learning, appropriation, appreciation and collecting art.
Artist Nava Waxman led the second part of the evening; an interactive activity for the company’s employees.
In the artistic session, participants had the opportunity to discover and explore one of the most ancient media in art – Encaustic.
Participants drew, etched and carved their own encaustic piece of art.
The activity sparked creative ideas, was inspirational and above all – fun.
