Sparking creativity and celebrating community

Collaborating with Google’s Real Estate & Workplace Services (REWS) team, ArtLifting produced the inaugural exhibition of Art@Google in Cambridge, a program series intended to energize and inspire employees through the arts.

About the project, John T. Moran, Real Estate Project Executive at Google shared, “We’re thrilled to be working with ArtLifting to display the work of talented artists on the walls of our campus, and knowing the social mission driving this work is the best part."

As part of the exhibition, Google acquired nine pieces by Boston-based artist Scott Benner and unveiled the artwork during an exhibition opening on Thursday, October 13th, 2016, at their campus in Cambridge, MA. The opening featured a reception and Fireside Chat with Benner and ArtLifting CEO and cofounder, Liz Powers, moderated by Brian Cusack, Head of Industry at Google.

In addition to the exhibition, Google hosted a panel with Liz Powers and artist Scott Benner moderated by Brian Cusack, Industry Director at Google.

“This is a life-changing moment for ArtLifting artists,” said Liz Powers, co-founder and Chief Happiness Spreader. “It’s the ultimate validation to have their talents recognized by Google, one of the most innovative companies in the world. This is an exciting example of how a large company can use creative programming to impact individual lives. We look forward to growing that impact together.”

"We’re thrilled to be working with ArtLifting to display the work of talented artists on the walls of our campus, and knowing the social mission driving this work is the best part.
We strive to create spaces that inspire and help cultivate innovation and we hope this artwork will positively influence the daily work of our Cambridge Googlers."
