Gulf States Toyota
The GST art collection reflects parameters important to the company as a whole: particularly Japan, Texas, the automobile industry, and their sensitivity to 21st century environmental issues. The collection compliments their LEED certified corporate headquarters, highlighting the natural materials used in the architecture. In homage to GST’s forty-five year history with Toyota, the art collection includes many Japanese artists. Simultaneously, the art reflects Texas and its artists as well. Finally, the art refers to the automotive industry in a formal way in that many of the commissioned works were inspired by automotive components and design.
“Works of art are located throughout the Silver Leed certified Gulf States Toyota building and include paintings, sculptures, prints, photographs, woodcuts, textiles and metalwork. MKG’s execution of the art plan was efficient and thorough, as well as mindful of budget and time constraints.” – Michael Avant, Vice President Friedkin Companies Inc.
