Corporate Art Programmes Around the World
The book offers a fascinating look behind the scenes into the world of corporate art. Celebrating progress in the field of corporate art programs and illustrating examples of best practice, the book explores the involvement of business in promoting and supporting museums and artists through art programs.
It documents the work of well over 100 companies worldwide – from major blue chip corporations, to hospitals, hotels, airports, factories and transit systems.
Authors Peter Harris and Shirley Reiff Howarth have researched the facets of many different corporate art programmes from companies spannng five continents.
Estimated to be worth billions, some of the many treasures to be found in this fascinating book have been seen in public, on loan to a variety of museums in travelling exhibitions, and a very few have never been seen in public before.
The reasons for corporate art collecting are many and various, some philanthropic, to help young artists and to support the world of culture, in other cases it has been a work of love by Directors who were collectors themselves, and in many cases the motivation was to project the company’s image to its shareholders, staff, clients, and general public.
