The Guild Sourcebook of Architectural & Interior Art 23 Featuring
"Green" is the theme for The Guild Sourcebook of Architectural & Interior Art 23, the newest annual sourcebook of commissionable artists for public, corporate, hospitality, healthcare, and liturgical projects from The Guild, Inc. The book features 11 case studies of commissions by artists incorporating "green" practices in their work including the use of recycled and non-toxic materials, lower energy consumption, reduced carbon footprint, and the elimination of waste. Examples include a glass "water" feature for a desert home that does not actually use any water and a solar-powered light sculpture that soaks up sunlight during the day to function as a lantern by night. The book also includes helpful advice on contracting and collaborating with commissionable artists, as well as a list of art consultants who can handle all aspects of the commissioning process.
