Bower Blue is a New York–based digital content agency for the visual arts and design communities. We help tell your stories.

From museums and nonprofits to galleries and studios, Bower understands the content needs for a range of clients. We know the work—the writing, the audio, the video—needs to be tailored, timely and refined. A network of writers, editors, photographers and videographers works under our direction to create engaging, accessible stories worth sharing.

Ryan Leahey, Bower’s director of digital content, is a writer and editor, with stints at Artsy, Kirkus Reviews and Gayletter magazine.

We operate as an affiliate of Blue Medium, the New York public relations firm founded in 2000. This close connection helps us build strategic relationships in our constantly expanding network.

Our name and ethos derive from a fascination with the satin bowerbird (Ptilonorhynchus violaceus). Native to Australia, this creature is known for its performative mating ritual: the making of an ornate nest, or bower, decorated with bright blue objects. We share a similiar passion for the collection and synthesis of content—the creation of something truly unique.
