THE GROUND FLOOR designs and produces art exhibitions, events, and experiences in unique environments promoting new and innovative creative people working in all media. 
Our purpose is to create intentional culture that generates a sense of wellness and belonging in community. We bring art into everyday life to provoke thoughts, exchange, and acquisition. We connect cities, citizens, collectors, patrons, and the press to emerging and established creatives.
