Through ArtWORKS, our organization works with your business to install dynamic exhibits of local and regional artwork in your workspace. More advanced packages give you the option to bring in local artists to do an art project with your employees, which is a fun way to foster teamwork, meaningful connections, a sense of belonging, boosted productivity and higher office morale through art. We are confident that any ArtWORKS package you choose will create a positive, welcoming work environment for your employees and clients!

Still not sure if ArtWORKS is a good fit for your workspace? Read the testimonials below from employees of former ArtWORKS clients, TMI Hospitality and Myriad Mobile:
The supplemental activities were great. It allowed our team to flex their creative muscles and participate in a group activity outside of the normal day-to-day responsibilities we all have.
As an employee of a company that sponsors Art WORKS, I have seen benefits in surprising places. We have such a broad variety of roles within our company it can sometimes be hard to find common ground- what does a graphic designer have in common with a company lawyer, or an accountant or member of I.T.? Art! It has been wonderful to see people making new connections and getting excited about the events surrounding Art WORKS.
I believe this program has also encouraged our team to take a stronger interest in their work. Being surrounded by beautiful and interesting things inspires positive and creative energy that seeps into our everyday tasks. I see the excitement that surrounds the opening of each new exhibit. It is talked about and anticipated as soon as the invitation goes out, and the effects of people enjoying are witnessed as long as it is hanging. It has added greatly to our company culture – we feel more connected to the community and to each other. I really can’t say enough about Art WORKS!
