The MFI Art Company Inc. is a New York corporate art consulting firm with clients ranging from small businesses to major multinational corporations. Since 1977, MFI has sold art and consultation services to thousands of clients mostly based in NYC.
Over time, we saw a large demand for high quality original art with an architectural New York theme but there was little of this type of work to be found in one central location. In 1986, we decided to address this need by opening a new division of the company, the Michael Ingbar Gallery of Architectural Art which would primarily focus on showing art with a representational architectural theme. The main purpose is to use the gallery as a magnet for artists that do this type of work, and then a resource for MFI Art. Since 1986 we have located many fine artists, photographers, architects, and renderers which fulfill this need.
MFI Art, Co. would continue focusing more on primarily abstract, non representational works for corporate clients.
Our efforts have primarily been aimed at heightening public awareness and appreciation for the rich architectural heritage of New York City as well as the value of the historical preservation. We are devoted to celebrating architectural accomplishments that we pass by each day.
Each group show in the gallery has focused on some particular aspect of architecture with the intent to explore and celebrate it through the visions of selected artists and architects. Some of our most memorable shows have been: “ New York Icons,” “Built to Last,” “Magnetic New York, Cast Iron Soho,” “Brooklyn Bridge for Sale,” “New York City Landmarks,” and “Drawing the Lines: New York City Subways” (a joint exhibition with the New York City Transit Museum), and “Corporate Bankruptcy, Abandoned Art.”
