At LiftOff321, we are dedicated to collaboration.

We recognize the distinctiveness of every sculpture project and understand that it all starts with discovering shared ground to achieve optimal solutions aligned with your objectives.

Our Vision:

LiftOff321, a division of American Fine Arts Foundry, specializes in design, fabrication, and engineering for monumental public art, architectural placemaking, workplace design, product prototyping, experiential design, and installation. Our team of designers, fabricators, artists, welders, and technologists collaborates with artisans, architects, developers, and builders to bring artistic visions to life on a grand scale.

Bill Mack’s dynamic monumental sculpture of children’s blocks challenged American Fine Arts to engineer the illusion of tumbling blocks. An almost impossible task! Recently installed in the newly constructed Four Seasons Hotel in Minneapolis in 2022.

Our passionate team loves to bring your ideas to life. We take your initial concept and carefully shape it into a design that’s not only ready to build but also thoughtfully priced. Our friendly Designers and Project Managers are here to figure out the best way to make your project, chatting with Engineers and consultants to make sure everything ticks along nicely. We’ll give you a clear cost estimate and timeline, so you know just how we’ll help your vision take off.
