Art in a Pinstripe Suit
The use of art in the corporate workplace has an interesting history. For centuries (even during the Italian Renaissance there were art collectors and patrons) art has been used to decorate the board rooms and corridors of large companies. Legal and accounting professionals, hospitals and hotels appreciate the value of their art collections and understand how art moves you, opens you up, gives you different ways of viewing the world. Today’s corporate art committees are wiser and more knowledgeable about fine art and often employ top gallery curators. Art has progressively become more important for the corporate image, not just as investment, but by creating a pleasant and inspiring environment in the workplace, for public relations, and for community relations. Employees can spend over 40 hours a week in a work environment that is often stressful and uninspiring. When they look up at art they be affected in many ways – art stimulates creativity and encourages problem solving. Where expensive paintings are usually placed in boardrooms and public spaces, limited edition prints provide an ideal low cost source of art for corporate environments. They are original, colourful and stimulating, and if you acquire wisely good original investment prints for the cost same as reproductions.
