Corporate Art – Can it Really Make Your Office More Productive?

Corporate art. What exactly classifies as corporate art? Is it art made specifically for office use? Or is it any art that is located in a corporate setting? When someone thinks of art they may associate someone in a freelance profession or a creative field but many artists find meaningful employment in the corporate world. According to the Corporate Art Force art can enhance any space in which it is installed but it can serve a great purpose specifically in office spaces. Art can make a corporate area feel more welcoming and attractive.

Corporate art can be original art or reproductions and it is made by artists such as painters, photographers, sculptors, print makers, and others.  Some corporate offices can even have their own corporate art galleries in which they request specific artists to create work just for them.  Clients of these galleries include architects, interior designers, and developers.

In general I personally feel that artwork can attract positive energy for the space it is displayed in, the people, and the company as a whole. What do you think?

Corporate art can do this by communicating your objectives and messaging, strengthen customer and employee interactions, promote your organizations brand and mission, encourage a creative and dynamic environment, strengthen morale, and engage others. Broadway Galleries can do an initial analysis of your brand and image and come up with a recommendation to optimize your options of artwork needed for your company. Just like we did here:

One important concept in corporate art is a sense of scale.  For example, if you have a large wall in your corporate space, you would ideally want a large artwork to fill it, or a series of multiple artworks.  Anything that is too small in size will look out-of-place.  Similarly, if you have a large open area, you would benefit from a large fountain or sculpture.

Ask the gallery you use if you are able to view your chosen artwork in its intended space before you buy it to make sure that it does suit the area in which it is used.

At Office Art Hire they feel that “In today’s tough economic climate astute employees understand that providing a positive and energised working environment enables employees to fully utilise their attributes which in turn improves financial, social and strategic performance.”

“For the employer, staff happiness and wellbeing means increased performance and in turn productivity – producing a healthy return on investment.”
