Area Environments + Public Functionary + Aaron De La Cruz
Area partnered with Minneapolis contemporary art gallery Public Functionary and San Francisco-based artist Aaron De La Cruz to create our first Gallery Collection line of wall coverings. This collaboration resulted in a show featuring new works by De La Cruz, and from those new works, we created a limited-edition line of wallpaper. The wall coverings were installed in the gallery and used as a backdrop to De La Cruz’s original works, adding to the overall impact of both the art and the gallery space.
This partnership marks an exciting new direction for Area, one that allows for special opportunities to work with artists while developing our line in a unique way. We are looking forward to creating more spaces that will simultaneously have a lasting effect on viewers and enhance the gallery show as a whole.
