Prairiebrooke has been the art resource for Kansas City homes since 1990, but its talents aren’t reserved for just residences. For more than 30 years, its team of consultants has curated gorgeous collections for corporate offices, multifamily projects and healthcare spaces across the metro.
Megan Hoban, president & owner of Prairiebrooke, not only has a passion for art—it’s in her blood. She began designing artscapes for corporate environments alongside her mother, Prairiebrooke founder and namesake, Brooke Morehead. With decades of experience under her belt, Hoban has mastered the art of creating extraordinary public spaces, all through well-placed and thoughtfully selected art.
Working throughout the healthcare, hospitality, multifamily and corporate industries, Prairiebrooke art consultants develop visually compelling collections that create eye-level interest and inspire a cohesive aesthetic throughout any given room or building. With employees, clients and visitors front-of-mind, the Prairiebrooke team expertly weaves interior design principles with your brand identity to achieve a look that’s both appealing and functional.
Prairiebrooke has partnered with many of the area’s top businesses to enhance the look of their spaces through artwork. You’ll find their signature touch around town in high-visibility projects like Meadowbrook at The Kessler, Meadowbrook Inn and Verbena. Prairiebrooke’s team is responsible for the exquisite lobbies and community spaces for City Place, Waterside and other signature Block Multifamily Group projects, as well as AdventHealth.
With a vast collection of original works and custom giclees, as well as in-house custom framing facilities, Prairiebrooke’s assets make it unique from all other art consultants. Hoban’s discernment for distinction maximizes each project budget and activates key spaces with cohesive collections. Whether fulfilling a project with one piece or 200, the Prairiebrooke team handles the process from design and production to framing and installation.
“The pandemic made us all appreciative of the spaces where we spend our time. Instead of buying filler ‘things’ from big box stores, we have seen a huge trend toward purchasing quality and intentional possessions that tell our stories,” Hoban said. “Businesses are no different. As employees return to work, they’ll be looking for environments that reflect the same kind of thoughtful integration.”
Outside of the obvious visual benefit, artwork has the ability to improve employee productivity and has been proven to provide healing comfort in healthcare settings. When planning a design for a corporate space, Hoban recommends starting with art, both in budget and concept. Dynamic designs don’t just happen by accident—they’re expertly crafted from start to finish.
