Everyone who visits my office comments on the art that graces the entry wall. Bringing that piece from home and hanging it in my office was the best decorating decision I could have made, and here are just a few of the reasons why:
- The piece helps to set the tone for what we do as an office. We're all about urban arts, and the photos are the complete embodiment of that.
- The piece tells visitors something about my personality. When someone asks me about the art, I am offered the opportunity to share information about my favorite artist, as well as details about when I bought the photographs and how I mounted them.
- As an arts organization, who would we be if we didn't actively support all kinds of artists? To me, it's essential that I be both a proponent and a genuine fan of much more than the artists or art forms with which I happen to work. Keeping art all around me is vital both for my personal engagement and my professional development.
