A Culture of Inclusion
Kasum Contemporary Fine Art Services is a double minority SDVOSB & NAOB company. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are at the core of who we are. Across all of our work, our commitment to these values is unwavering. They are central to our mission and to our impact. We know that having varied perspectives helps generate better ideas to solve the complex problems of a changing—and increasingly diverse—world. We know from experience that reducing and eliminating inequity starts with an intentional culture of inclusivity. In 2019, Kasum developed a creative projects subsidiary, Manifold Creative Concepts. Manifold was founded on a desire to serve site-specific public and corporate art projects through multicultural, interdisciplinary collaborations that bridge geographic boundaries to achieve new forms of artistic expression and offer creative mentorship that aids the growth of developing creative and cultural leaders.

A History of Growth
Kasum Contemporary Fine Art, Inc. was founded in 2014, by art’s entrepreneur Anton R. T. Morton and visual creative Stacey D. Miller, in Oklahoma City, OK. Originally established as a retail art gallery, our company found focus in the primary market representing contemporary works by mid to established career artists from across the domestic United States. As the gallery’s market capture quickly grew so did the business’s opportunities to expand. In 2016 Kasum expanded the company focus to include art services for major commission acquisitions. Over the course of that first year, the shift led to major commission contracts for the Oklahoma University Trust, and EMBARK Transportation Authority; and additional contracts in 2017 with BancFirst Corp, MidFirst Bank Corp. and the OU College of Medicine. The bloom of growth that took place over those two years lead to a complete restructuring of the company mission; refocused with a dedicated attention to providing arts consulting, logistics, handling and public art project management and team building. In 2019, Kasum formed Manifold Creative Concepts; a multidisciplinary studio focused in meeting the needs of site-specific public art projects. Manifold combines a diverse compendium of visual artists, serving an array of media, with project managers and coordinators, construction engineers, architects, and art’s administrators. Constantly expanding, the studio is currently in partnerships with creative and creative support professionals from across the US, EU, UK, AU and East Africa.
