The 2023 State of the Art Report

NINE dot ARTS knows the immense value that art – and the artists who create it – bring to the built environment. But their impact isn’t always recognized, and their potential sometimes goes untapped. That’s why we produce the State of the Art Report to grow the body of research available on creative placemaking – the integration of art, culture, and community-engaged design into the real estate development process.

This year’s report reflects the responses of hundreds of real estate professionals across regions and industries, revealing powerful insights about how architecture, design, and art and culture work together to culminate in successful placemaking.


Read the report to see what these leaders are saying about how art like yours influences their projects’ success. And use these insights to leverage your own artwork for public and private spaces! The report will demonstrate how your art can… 

  • differentiate a space;
  • increase the return on investment for a space and its owners;
  • support Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) goals for commercial developers; and
  • create a positive social impact within the community at large!

Follow along on LinkedIn and Instagram as we dive deeper into findings from the 2023 State of the Art Report over the coming weeks. Plus, tune into dot dot dot: The NINE dot ARTS Podcast to hear these findings brought to life through inspiring conversations with industry leaders on art and placemaking in the built environment.
