Kitchell has spearheaded the building of some of the most prominent arts and cultural facilities throughout the West and Southwest. We are proud to see these masterful works come to fruition and to know we had a role in their success. We understand the fast-changing technical requirements of sophisticated public art projects, and we ensure the overall success of projects by articulating goals, involving all stakeholders, and moving the collective team forward together.
