8 REASONS TO PARTNER WITH THE ARTS:
Employees want to live and work in a vibrant community
When you partner to support local theater, music, museums, dance and public art, you help to make
your community more attractive to current and future employees. Happier employees make for a
happier workplace. But you knew that already, naturally.
Put Your Company in the Spotlight
The arts help you build market share, enhance your brand and reach new customers.
Celebrating the arts is a way to build a powerful presence and engage with multiple stakeholders
quickly and effectively. Museums, symphonies, dance performances, festivals and more allow you to
reach customers and are venues to entertain prospective and current clients. Businesses agree that
the arts increase name recognition (79 percent) and offer networking opportunities to develop new
business (74 percent).
Advance Corporate Objectives & Strategies
The arts help you get your message across in engaging ways.
The arts can educate the public and your employees about core business issues such as informing
them about your products or teaching them to make healthy choices.
Foster Critical Thinking
Did you know that creativity is among the top applied skills sought by employers?
More often than not, business leaders say creativity is of high importance when hiring. The arts are
about critical thinking, solving and reframing problems and facts in ways that reveal insights and
opportunities. Music, creative writing, drawing and dance provide skills sought by employers of the
third millennium. In fact 72% of companies that give to the arts recognize that it stimulates creative
thinking, problem solving and team building.
Engage Your Employees
The arts challenge employees to be their best. Whether it’s showing off their own creative talent in a company art show or battle of the bands, or volunteering for a local arts group, the arts let your employees use their current skills and develop new ones. For instance, sitting on an art organization’s board is great training for sitting on your company’s board. In fact, studies show that millennials who frequently participate in workplace volunteer activities are more likely to be proud, loyal and satisfied employees.
Embrace Diversity & Team Building
The arts create an environment that blends backgrounds, ethnicities and cultures.
Through exhibitions, performances and workshops, the arts provide opportunities for employees to grapple with workplace concerns and become more familiar with their coworkers in the next cubicle or around the world. What’s more, committing to the arts lets people inside and outside your company know that you value (and promote) innovative thinking and a creative culture.
To Say Thanks
The arts are a great way to show you appreciate your employees.
Providing tickets to events, museum memberships and other arts experiences is the perfect way to inspire employees and say “thanks.”
Contribute to the Economy & Quality of Life
When you partner with local arts, you partner with the whole city.
The arts are essential to the health and vitality of neighborhoods, cities, states and our nation.
They enhance community development, create jobs, spur urban renewal, attract new businesses,
draw tourism dollars, and create an environment that attracts skilled and educated workers.
Nationally, the nonprofit arts and culture industry generates $135.2 billion in economic activity every
year—$61.1 billion in spending by organizations and an additional $74.1 billion in event-related
spending by their audiences.

As Art Consultants, we help you select and acquire art — including paintings, drawings, photographs, and sculptures — for your home, business, or collection. Sometimes, it’s for decorative purposes. For instance, a corporation might hire an Art Consultant to choose brand-appropriate art for its offices, or a hotel to choose eye-catching pieces for its guest rooms.
Our duties typically include assessing our clients’ needs and tastes, including your likes and dislikes; staying abreast of trends, including which Artists are hot and which pieces are for sale; working with auction houses and galleries to source art; advising on purchases, based on criteria such as theme, budget, and value; commissioning original artwork for our clients; appraising the art in owners’ collections; and framing then installing new purchases.
Because many people are intimidated and mystified by it, we’re basically a Seeing Eye dog with a nose for good art.
