The UK's leading workplace art specialist

Art Acumen have over twenty years’ experience curating collections and developing programmes to nurture creative cultures for the workplace.

A well considered art collection and programme will reflect company culture, stimulate creativity, boost staff morale and promote wellbeing, it will create opportunities to bring people together and galvanise a feeling of belonging as well as encourage diversity and engagement.

Initially we will meet with you for a briefing session, where we spend time understanding your organisation, its people, culture, values, ambitions and approach to business, we will then assess the space and consider locations, scale and type of art. This will help guide the philosophy and scope for the art programme and create meaningful themes to work with. Art Acumen will come prepared with some initial thoughts and images to assist with these discussions.

We will agree a project scope with you and then commence our research stage, drawing on our extensive portfolio of artists. We represent the most exciting up-and-coming talent in the art market today alongside an impressive roster of established names, and as we have a truly bespoke approach to all of our projects, we are constantly expanding this collection as we search for the best and most appropriate art for our clients.

As well as boosting staff morale and promoting wellbeing, a creative culture in the workplace can also drive business value. 

Research shows that creativity is firmly associated with superior performance, and thoughtful, engaging art programmes can play a significant role in nurturing the key behaviours that optimise creativity and the ability to generate innovative ideas.
