About Mackenzie Spriggs

IG: @thecontemporarycreatives

Mackenzie Spriggs is the Founder of The Contemporary Creatives®, a leading marketing agency in Washington, D.C. Mackenzie and her team specialize in crafting compelling campaigns that resonate with audiences and drive engagement through authentic storytelling and sustainable strategy. Clientele includes contemporary artists, art dealers, galleries, and leading art institutions. 

There was no marketing agency specifically tailored to directly serve independent artists until Contemporary Creatives came into existence in 2020. From a background entrenched in the gallery and museum world, Mackenzie observed the pressing need for independent artists to have access to digital marketing services and educational resources. Mackenzie spearheaded the launch of Contemporary Creatives and aimed to bridge the gap in the artistic space, empowering artists with the tools they need to achieve their professional goals with creativity and marketing precision.
