“Charlotte’s tireless energy inspires everyone involved. Her aim to bring projects to a perfect completion is reflected in all her projects.
-Shuli Sade, Artist
We've been there.
“In the beginning there was no art - by intent. […] We engaged Charlotte early on to sit in on programming and design workshops with the architectural team, but it took a while to turn around the initial perception of art as expression of opulence to an understanding of art in service to mission. Charlotte tuned in immediately to our organizational culture and its underlying contradictions, and brought a compelling array of art program options for discussion and debate with leadership. The result is a lively, vibrant and beautiful campus that reminds us daily of who we are and aspire to be as members of our local and global care-giving communities. Such is the power of art when well-curated and appropriately placed. “
-David Burson, Senior Project Manager, Partners HealthCare
