"ACS is FABULOUS! They transformed our new Orthopedics Rehab Clinic with artwork that branded the facility as a state-of-the-art medical center treating orthopedic injuries in a healing environment. Images related to the sports and activities that draw patients to the center and were mixed with beautiful calming scenes of nature. ACS was efficient, on budget, on schedule, pleasant to work with, and fun! I highly recommend them."

"Kira, Carli and Mary Ann were the best to work with!!  Kira and Carli were  professional, yet very personable; they are creative and have lots of great ideas, and are passionate about what they do.  They listened to what we wanted, and their suggestions made it so much better.  They were patient throughout the process of working collaboratively with us to select the most complimentary artwork for our work environment and our culture.  Mary Ann and Carli orchestrated the installation without a hitch.  We are so pleased with our art!!!  I was impressed with Art Consulting Services from start to finish - I can't recommend them highly enough!!"

"ACS was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. As we toured the building and went from area to area admiring the finished product, at every turn we saw pieces we knew from the acquisition process now in their full context and the result was fantastic. Many pieces looked as if the entire space was created around the art, rather than the art adding beauty to an existing space.  The effect was breathtaking. The final product of their hard work exceeded our expectations and the feedback from patients and staff has been nothing but positive.  It was such a rewarding experience to be on the art committee with ACS and see the beautiful result of their tireless effort!"

"When we first met Kira Stewart and her staff from Art Consulting Services, a sense of confidence was instilled right away and it became clear from the beginning that Rideout Cancer Center’s expansion project was going to be an exciting one.  ACS listened to us, viewed our facility and came back with suggestions and a presentation of beautiful artwork to adorn our building. The project was a huge undertaking; ACS coordinated the artistry, logistics, foundation requests, installation and final presentation at our open house event.  Everything was done seamlessly.  Patients are enjoying their special gift and have told us the artwork takes their mind off their illness, and some pieces remind them of a special place. 

ACS has extraordinary talent and gave our center something so special, words cannot express. 

We are grateful to Kira and the

team for introducing beautiful art for all of us to enjoy!" Susan Vague Administrator Rideout Cancer Center

Kira and her team continually go above and beyond in their dedication to excellence.  Their commitment to staying on the leading edge with the artwork and design options they present to us is one of the many reasons Art Consulting Services continues to be our choice whenever we need artwork."

"Thank you for making Sierra Central's Corporate Headquarters warm, tone-setting, friendly, fun and interesting. You guys really nailed it with the artwork - I can’t thank you enough. What you did was awesome! It looks phenomenal! Outstanding job, thank you!” John Cassidy - CEO of Sierra Central Credit Union

"Kira Stewart, the team and the artists of Art Consulting Services have been amazingly generous in donating artwork and services for both our midtown and south Sacramento offices. Women and children who enter our counseling and wellness centers are apprehensive and frightened. The array of photography, prints, clay and paintings that the team designed, curated, framed, installed and donated has made the environment welcoming and cheerful. We regularly hear comments from visitors, our staff and clients about how uplifting and beautiful the pieces are. We never felt like a pro bono client. They tackled the work with WEAVE as seriously and with as much detail as they would have any other client. We are grateful for their continued and enthusiastic support of the vital work WEAVE does in the community."

Beth Hassett - Executive Director - WEAVE

"ACS did an amazing job curating the artwork for a large renovation project we recently completed. Our goal was to install artwork that would be meaningful, personal, local and would tell a story. ACS was able to achieve all of those goals through their thoughtful selection process. It was wonderful to watch the

buzz of excitement  as the residents watched the artwork being installed. That community has a very rich culture of art and many of the residents and staff recognized the local masters pieces even before the plaques went up. Silk fabric mobiles were installed, which added an additional layer of intrigue, many residents even commenting, “and they move…!!!”

My favorite pieces installed were large quilted fabric masterpieces.Residents donated their own pieces of fabric, with heartwarming stories,were woven

into the art pieces, making them personal and original. ACS even created touchable samples along with a display board, telling the unique story.The artwork provided that special touch needed to make the entire renovation project as meaningful as possible.

We have loved the experience working with ACS - they did a terrific job!!"

"The project of building a new 5 story regional medical center was a huge undertaking for our organization. Kira and the team at ACS were absolutely amazing and we are thrilled with the artwork they created and developed for our hospital. Not only did they have to respond to our  leadership changes during the project, but we also asked them to include absolutely every local artist they could find while still making us look like the world-class healthcare organization that we are. They completely surpassed our expectations! I cannot recommend them highly enough – their experience, expertise, passion and creativity was as good as their project management and project execution  - a difficult combination to find and one that few firms possess. ACS has it all in spades!"
