Indiewalls, in collaboration with ZGF Architects and Seneca Group, has orchestrated an art collection that mirrors Amazon's deep commitment to diversity and innovation. Highlighting the skills of local artists like Brittany Gould and Gabriel Schama, this initiative has seamlessly integrated the vibrancy of Arlington's art scene into Amazon's corporate identity. Gould has produced a three-dimensional wall relief that revisits and reimagines a cherished childhood memory, reflecting her artistic sensibility. Similarly, Schama's "Potomac Flow," precisely fashioned from laser-etched plywood, captures the peaceful rhythm of the river. Our engagement transcended mere curation; we meticulously managed artist contracts, supervised fabrication, and ensured flawless installation. Consistent communication, innovative resolutions, and thorough coordination marked this expansive project that enhances the aesthetic environment of Amazon's workspace while standing as an homage to the rich diversity and creativity inherent to the Arlington artistic community.
The artworks by Brittany Gould and Gabriel Schama, each with their unique language of expression, converge to form a cohesive narrative within Amazon's HQ2. Gould's wall sculpture, an homage to the vivid imprints of memory, and Schama's “Potomac Flow,” a meditation on nature's perpetual dance, together encapsulate the spirit of introspection and the celebration of diversity. These pieces not only serve as visual anchors within the corporate landscape but also function as catalysts for reflection, underlining the importance of personal and collective narratives in shaping our environments. Their presence in Amazon's headquarters is a powerful reminder of the role art plays in enlivening spaces and inspiring those who move within them, leaving a lasting impression of Arlington's artistic vitality.
