WHAT INSPIRES US
ART, ART, EVERYWHERE.
by Anna / in Art
Lin Chau is very fond of bees. As co-founder of the Glasgow School of Art Beekeeper’s Association she speaks with passion on the subject of bees. This passion has filtered into her art work and a recent sculptural piece is installed in a most unlikely office:
"I realised art can be shown anywhere. An artist who works in Glasgow city council has asked me to give him a piece of artwork to put in his art box to generate environmental conscious discussions. He has just emailed me and said it has generated quite a bit of interest."
WHY YOU SHOULD PUT ART IN YOUR OFFICE
Chau’s work is a timely reminder that art can be a thought-provoker and a discussion starter. Offices are largely untapped for their gallery and art exhibiting potential. All those empty, white walls crying out for inspiring art works.
My challenge is thus to inspire organisations to realise the value of visual art in the workplace, to use art as a tool for generating conversation and improving communication as well as creating an vibrant and creative environment.
