In addition to being the home of the Warriors as well as world-class concerts and events, Chase Center will also house unique artwork thanks to a partnership with Adobe. The Chase Center Art Collection, presented by Adobe includes 87 original pieces, 250 pieces of photography and nine museum-quality graphics.
“We made a commitment early on to have a robust art program at Chase Center that showcases the abundance of talent in the Bay Area to visually tell the story of the Warriors and the region’s culture and history,” said Warriors President and Chief Operating Officer Rick Welts. “Adobe believes in the power of the creative community to inspire dialogue and action through art and media and we’re looking forward to having them be a part of our art efforts.”
Adobe will be the Presenting Partner of the Chase Center Art Collection, which consists of all artwork received from Sports and the Arts (SATA), who Chase Center commissioned to source and acquire one-of-a-kind, museum-quality art and photography created by local artists. The Warriors intend to present entertainment and regional history through the showcase.
“At Adobe, we believe that creativity is fundamental to help solve problems and drive positive change in our communities,” said Adobe Vice President of Brand Marketing, John Travis. “We believe everyone is creative and we’re committed to inspiring creativity in people around the world, including right here in the heart of San Francisco, through the Chase Center Art Collection and our continued partnership with the Warriors.”
Artwork will be exhibited throughout Chase Center and the surrounding Thrive City area. Pieces will be displayed in public areas within the arena as well as inside a number of Chase Center suites. Thrive City will also house various pieces of art, including the recently announced Seeing spheres by renowned artist Olafur Eliasson which will be prominently displayed outside the East Entrance of Chase Center.
"This project truly was a labor of love", says Tracie Speca Ventura, founder of Sports & The Arts, "thank you to the Golden State Warriors for your vision and dedication to excellence."
