When a young couple selected Eubanks Group Architects to build their dream home, they also considered beginning a legacy art collection that would also serve as an investment vehicle. With no experience in visual art, they turned to Weingarten Art Group as trusted advisors to embark on this aesthetic journey. After poring over international art fairs, galleries and museums, the couple developed a penchant for Latin American Modernist works during a time when the market was very attractive to buyers. In due time, several of their investments — works on paper, wall-mounted sculptures and paintings — tripled in value.
