American Flag

Art of Tao just completed and installed a beautiful mixed media flag for the developer of Heirloom Flats, a gorgeous new apartment community in Connecticut. The developer is brilliantly curating multiple artists each time he develops a property and commissioning them to create custom work. Tao and I worked for several months with the art consultant and developer. Tao did a great job designing and building a site specific work of art.

We had the chance to meet some of the other selected talented artists. A few of them we knew from around the Hartford art scene including Stanwyk Cromwell and Michael Borders

Tao's intention with this work was to create a faux vintage 1959 look, as if the flag and logo had been there for a while, not just installed. The flag is a combination of fresh vintage style.  

More businesses should include art in their budget. It enhances the community, creates jobs in an important sector, feeds the local economy, and generates goodwill. Plus, its beautiful!
