Gordon Huether Studio was founded in 1987 and has created large-scale, site-specific public art installations for universities, hospitals, recreation centers, civic buildings, libraries, museums, airports, transportation centers, parking garages and private corporations throughout the Bay Area and the world. Effective collaboration with architects, design teams, project stakeholders and developers is a central component of GHS’s success. Recent installations in the Bay Area include the BART Coliseum Station in Oakland, wall installations for the downtown parking structure in Morgan Hill and Mariposa Plaza in Fresno. A team of project managers, administrators, highly skilled fabricators and technicians support the process from initial design development through final installation. The studio is located in a 15,000 square foot facility in Napa and visitors are welcome.
Artist Gordon Huether, Allied Member uses a wide variety of materials, approaches and applications in his art practice. Whether fabricated with glass, metal, fabric or synthetic materials, or architecturally integrated, sculptural or suspended, each installation is an expression of the qualities and character of the site and an engagement with those who experience the space. A seven-term member of the City of Napa’s Planning Commission, Gordon has consulted with numerous civic entities on the integration of public art into public and private spaces. He is frequently asked to speak on the topic of Public Art and is recognized as an expert on the integration of public art in airport settings. GHS is currently collaborating with the Salt Lake City Department of Airports on a multi-million dollar art installation for the Terminal Redevelopment Program, with an expected installation date of 2020.
