Caza Sikes is privileged to work with leaders in service and industry, private, public and not-for-profit. We actively seek partnerships with a like-minded commitment to integrity and quality. Below are a few of the organizations with which we have been lucky enough to serve.
The Golden Lamb
In efforts to rebrand and prepare the iconic Golden Lamb for a move into the future, the owners needed to get a handle on the historic collection, its value, a way to manage that collection, and a plan to best integrate historical pieces with newer more contemporary works. We appraised over 1,000 items, provided hard and digital records, and gave the organization a user friendly way to manage the extensive and historical collection. We helped them assess what should be moved, repaired, kept and sold. In addition, we consulted on new artist works to use and integrate in the refurbished spaces, supporting the integrity of the brand and it’s collection, into the future.
University of Cincinnati Foundation
Before donations can be made on behalf of an estate or individual, to a museum or instituion, a certified appraisal must be completed. We have worked with numerous museums and institutions in assessing works and collections for donation, and in coordinating those donations. Because of our experience and level of service, The University of Cincinnati Foundation recommends Caza Sikes to patrons who wish to donate their collections to the University.
Art Academy of Cincinnati
Assisting the Art Academy of Cincinnati in many different capacities has been an honor for Caza Sikes. We evaluated art from their collection and helped them to deaccesion works through auction in order to raise money for the organization’s 150th Anniversary. We ran their annual Minumentals exhibition and sale, and look forward to running their fall auction in 2019.
“The visit to your gallery was exactly what I needed after several days in Indianpolis with my sister, who underwent major surgery. After days of gray walls and floor, seeing the exhibit that Ursula curated and installed so vibrantly was exactly what the doc ordered. I really enjoyed talking to Ursula and seeing an exhibit in action, in addition to the beautiful and unique artists’ work that your gallery holds. I told Reid that it reminded me much of Blue Spiral, only on a more intimate level. It makes me especially happy to see a gallery like yours that showcases much mixed media and soulful art, especially in Cincinnati— quite a lot to take in! ” – Michelle Hayden
