Studies on the benefits of art in the workplace:
[According to studies conducted by BOSTI Associates, a workplace planning and design consultancy firm in New York, “there is a clear correlation between how people experience the offices they work in and their productivity levels on the job, including job performance, satisfaction and their ability to communicate with each other.”
In 1967, David Rockefeller established the Business Committee for the Arts (BCA) — a national nonprofit organization that encourages, inspires, and stimulates businesses to support the arts in the workplace, in education, and in the community.
According to a survey conducted by the BCA and International Association of Professional Art Advisors (IAPAA) to establish a positive relationship between job productivity, stress, morale, creativity, and art in the workplace across industries, “82% of employees said art was important in the work environment, and 73% percent said their view of the company would change if the art were removed.”]
