eo art lab art consulting smartly joins eo’s far-reaching experience as an internationally acclaimed art gallery and Owner John Schroeder’s wide-ranging expertise as an highly accomplished architect to create an art consulting firm like no other. We not only know art, but also places and spaces. Some firms know something about art, but very little about design. Others know something about design, but very little about art. We know both intimately well.
We are also not “one trick ponies” as many firms are, but rather thoughtful, astute facilitators of perfectly tailored solutions. We offer any corporate, hospitality, institutional, or residential client a variety of carefully crafted services to meet their individual needs on projects both large and small. We assist our clients with achieving the ideal atmosphere by incorporating exceptional works of art by very intelligent, passionate, talented artists.
Our artists are recognized for producing work that is not only visually compelling but also substantively rich, and in the case of original work, laden with investment value. Working with eo art lab art consulting will ensure both the highest quality of service and the highest quality of product – an unbeatable combination.

Hotel and resort design can vary widely in terms of image and décor. eo is up for the challenge of any style whether it is minimalist and pure, ornate and lavish, fun and funky, or anything in between. We can connect you with artists that excel in each of these realms and who will contribute harmoniously to the overall vision. However, sometimes harmony is not the answer and rather contrast and drama are more perfectly suited to a hotel’s vibe. eo understands how to make that happen in the right way. When it comes to hospitality work, we’re happy to think outside the box. For the rooms and corridors, so many of our artists’ works translate well to print, so we can easily carry the same themes into the circulation spaces and sleeping chambers.
This sector includes everything from hospitals to retirement communities to college buildings to governmental facilities. Obviously, the needs of all these clients are very diverse. And even within these different organizations, there are contrasting needs. eo enjoys variety and our large contingent of talented artists also appreciate “mixing it up.” eo is able to address all of these varying needs while still creating a unified whole. In medical facilities it is often desired to present artwork that is calming for patients and family, but also interesting enough to allow for a bit of daydreaming. For retirement communities it is often desired to present a bit of nostalgia and sometimes worldly images. For college buildings it may be work that is a bit more cerebral and in tune with the specific function of the space, such as science, engineering, literature, or economics. The latter is true also for governmental buildings, where the art speaks to the function of the space, supports it, and even expands on it.
eo is well versed in placing artwork in corporate settings. We believe that artwork in corporate venues provides many fundamental and desirable functions. It can encourage creativity, productivity, and openness of thought, it can heighten morale, it can promote relationship building, and perhaps most amazing of all, it can speak to the goals and visions of the company. Just like the other sectors, the work can be understated, dignified, and formal or it can be fun, upbeat, and playful. It just depends on what the business type and function of the space is. For corporate lobbies, we can commission large installation paintings or sculptures that offer very dramatic and impressive statements. For executive office areas, we can offer work that may be smaller in scale, but not at all diminished in quality or substance. It is also important to note the solid investment value that our artists and their work offer.
eo is nicely positioned to assist with both multi-family residential as well as individual buyers. Much of our business is with individual buyers and we give them the same close attention and assistance as our larger clients. For multi-family projects, such as luxury condos or apartment buildings, we can create the perfect level of sophistication to attract the desired clientele. And we don’t just address the inside, the exterior is important too. In fact, it’s the outside where initial impressions are formed. For individual clients, buying art is usually a bit more emotional and personal and we understand that. We have lots of experience assisting individual clients and we can carefully and thoughtfully guide you to smart purchases that work well in your home, have timeless appeal, and offer great interest, intrigue, and investment value.
