High Arte's business model — an integrated marketing, graphic, media and e-commerce Web design firm — grew out Bolen's knowledge and love of art and design; his recognition of the Internet's significance as the world's new business platform and three decades working in the entertainment industry.
There, the creative and marketing talent is hired — based on the project's requirements — on an as-needed basis. And so it is with High Arte, where staffing is tailored — project-by-project — to meet each client's need.
Graduating from Chicago's renowned Art Institute and Goodman School of Drama with a BFA and a double major in theater and design, Bolen has done everything from designing homes and offices to directing Shakespeare's Merry Wives of Windsor at the Tribeca Bar and Grill and La Boheme for Opera Theatre of St. Louis.
As Producing Director of Charleston, South Carolina's Dock Street Theatre, he produced and directed three seasons of 24 plays and musicals and orchestrated a year-long subscription campaign that doubled the theater's audience base. He also designed and supervised the restoration of the Queen Street Playhouse.
Some of his more interesting producing credits include: the Brooklyn Academy of Music's The Gershwin Celebration starring Leonard Bernstein, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Rosemary Clooney, Bob Dylan, and Michael Tilson Thomas and its videotaping for PBS's Great Performances. Bolen did extensive work in Europe, including producing The Bridge – A Festival of American Musical Theatre in Beziers, France, starring Betty Comden, Adolph Green and Honey Coles; the original European tour and Metropolitan Opera presentation of Robert Wilson and Philip Glass's acclaimed opera, Einstein On The Beach; and the international, U.S. State Department tour of The Martha Graham Dance Company — celebrating the signing of the "Camp David Accord."
On moving from New York City to West Hollywood, Bolen returned to school and became certified in both graphic and Web design. He happily shares his home and life with a half-breed Briard, named Morgan.
Melding the imaginative, intuitive and conceptual with the logical, practical and strategic — aspects honed over years of creating a wide variety of projects — Bolen uses his knowledge, experience and creativity to guide High Arte's clients in transforming their projects into viable — marketable — realities.
He would be pleased to do the same with your project.
So, why not give him a call at 323-656-6517 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org and discover what High Arte can do for you?
Working with Bolen on my website couplestherapistla.com was so pleasurable because he really took the time to get to know who I am and what I offer, and he came up with a site that reflects that, while still sharing his feedback on what "works".
It is difficult for me to give up creative control of my marketing, but with Bolen I felt that I could trust him to understand the impact I wanted my site to have. I felt like he created a unique site. He continues to be available to me for any questions I have or issues that I am unsure about.
It is refreshing to do business with someone who is personable and interested in who the client is. He really cares about his work, and that passion shows.
