stARTup streamlines the process of art buying by connecting companies, interior designers, and private individuals to an expert curatorial team and highly vetted roster of artists for a rich and uniquely customized service.

Art Advising              


We provide expert guidance with art acquisitions, collection assessment and management, care and installation, and special commissions for businesses and private individuals to elevate and preserve the value of your collection.

Our advisory team also develops rental programs for a wide range of uses from rotating art displays for hotels and restaurants to home staging and film projects so that your customers always enjoy fresh and engaging environments.



Curating special exhibitions and art events is, well, our specialty. From exclusive boutique events with clients like Isaia International, a Neapolitan Menswear firm and Jeff King & Company fine home builders to large-scale locations like Hilton’s Parc 55 hotel in downtown San Francisco and the Loggia Showroom in the Galleria Building of the San Francisco Design Center, our team executes exceptional exhibitions managing every detail from customized proposals through installation, event planning and de-installation, so you can focus on attracting new clients and building relationships.


Commissions & Partnerships


With access to over 300 highly vetted artists we work closely with private, corporate, civic, and design clients to source original works, special commissions, site specific projects and other unique collaborations. Our partnership with Artfinder, one of the world’s largest online art sources, is just one example of the creative relationships we like to foster to nurture awareness and build community.

We work closely with our clients and design partners to source unique original works and limited editions. Drawing upon our strong relationships with emerging artists, we can often offer one of a kind commissions to fit your personal or project needs.
