Over the past 5+ years, it’s been our pleasure to work with our corporate clients to rent, purchase, or commission art for their offices, retail spaces, or restaurants. It’s also been interesting to learn what clients want, how they’re using their spaces, and how IPaintMyMind’s various art services can play a part in telling a story while energizing the space. Should you rent or buy art for your office? We might have some answers.
Whether rotating art rentals for offices, building art collections via acquisitions, or commissioning murals and large scale works, it’s really all about the company culture and the space.
First, culture, because the personality, tone, tenor, and vibe of the company we work with is everything. By learning more about our clients work and goals, we’re able to help curate options that are a perfect fit for the people that work in the space every day.
That said, there are a few questions any company will want to ask themselves when evaluating the various options, ahead I unpack the pros and cons, as well as offer some insight that will help your decision-makers pick the perfect art vendor and project for you.
Leasing art for your space is an incredible way to keep your office, restaurant, or retail location fresh. When we work with clients that purchased art for their spaces before finding us, they often are confronted with what to do with the old art they no longer want. This happens all the time, I can’t tell you enough! What’s more, 99.9% of companies don’t have an internal position with someone tasked to manage, catalogue, move, store, and rotate whatever was hung on the wall.
Inevitably, teams change and the calendar moves forward, and after a while, people on your team will be “over” the current art. Renting art for your space and having it rotated every 3, 6 or 12 months, really gives you the ability to host impressively on an ongoing basis.
If you hire IPaintMyMind for your art rental subscription, we also offer super unique differentiators – your art funds art programs in underserved schools and you get the chance to help our team install art in a local school. Get art, give back, how rad is that?!
