Some notable projects we have undertaken for MGM include:
- MGM PLAZA ART INSTALLATION: In 1993, TKOart played a crucial role in MGM's relocation from their historic lot in Culver City to Santa Monica, California. We curated and installed over 1,800 pieces of art across 16 floors and five buildings, as well as redesigned 24 conference rooms. Additionally, we established an on-site "art cage" for the secure storage of valuable art pieces.
- CENTURY CITY ART PROCUREMENT: When MGM relocated to Century City in 2003, we were entrusted with the handling of all aspects of art procurement, placement, and handling. TKOart curated 68 images that traced the history of MGM and United Artists, printed and framed them in large sizes, and inset them into niches created specifically for each piece.
- BEVERLY HILLS ART DISPLAY: In 2011, we once again were responsible for MGM's art display during their move to Beverly Hills. Our team has continued to collaborate with MGM to provide distinctive, challenging, and stunning art displays, which have contributed to our growth and success.
- CREATIVE ART PATCHWORK: We were brought in as creative consultants to fill uneven walls with artwork. The images were printed on special silver paper to create a glowing effect from within and strategically placed at the end of hallways and key sightlines.
- BUILDING ENTRY DISPLAY: Our team designed and installed six giant cantilevered pieces of plexi to showcase six of MGM's most iconic cinematic moments. Our unique design resulted in a stunning display that appeared as if these iconic images were floating off the Venetian plaster walls of the vaulted entry.
- HISTORICAL DOCUMENTS & PHOTOGRAPHY DISPLAY: We scanned and printed key historical documents, producing high quality replicas of the originals and designed a museum display to highlight and elevate the company's history.
- QUATERLY MARKETING ART ROTATION: We provided removable vinyl wallpaper for rotating art displays in MGM's worldwide locations.
- INTERCHANGEABLE ART DISPLAYS: We created an interchangeable art system for MGM's entryways to accomadate the turnover of artwork for each new movie relase.
