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 commissioning 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 2020, Kasum formed Manifold Creative; 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 composed of members from across fourteen States and the UK.
