Who we are
We are enablers of makers. RARE artists, ideas and origins. Cultivated artistry.
RAREculture grew out of a passion for pairing real artists and craftspeople with ideators and visionaries. From fine handicrafts to highly technical endeavors, our curatorial expertise and in-house design team produce specifically tailored works. We are advisers, curators, designers, matchmakers and problem solvers, and we span the globe seeking untapped creativity with a passion.

RAREculture curates from their deep, international network of artists & artisans, providing a uniquely tailored experience for each property. We commission custom works that are grounded in a sense of place, that weave in the history of the destination and allow property to provide are more rich, holistic and educational experience.
From early design stages to opening day, RAREculture’s internal design team is engaged; from conceptualization & planning to execution of logistics & installation. RAREculture works across multiple scales, from large exterior installations involving building facades & landscapes to intimate guest room spaces.
