NOTABLE PROJECT EXPERIENCE
Kaiser Permanente Medical Office Building
Santa Rosa, CA | 2018
Carli assisted the senior designer on this project by applying her design skills and communications skills to aid in the artwork selection process, meeting preparation process and most of all the process of finding, vetting and recruiting local artists to the Santa Rosa area. The project managers wanted a majority of local artists on this project as the area had just survived a major fire and they wanted to support the local economy and uplift it’s citizens. Carli connected with 100 artists from the area and over the span of 6 months, she worked with 28 of
them to bring beautiful and meaningful commissioned pieces to the space.
Sutter Health PACE Senior Care
Sacramento, CA | 2018
Carli assisted the senior designer for this meaningful project by applying her design skills, organization and by helping to run two focus groups with the participants who would be spending their days in the space to understand the type of artwork that would speak to them and brighten their days there. She traveled to the pre-existing senior centers to set up a presentation of various artists, sat down with the participants and spent time engaging with them about their life experiences and how it related to artwork they enjoyed. The project was a huge success and was covered by many local news outlets
