The essential reference to art in the workplace and the corporate art world, the International Directory of Corporate Art Collections is still the only comprehensive guide to corporate art collecting around the world. In continuous publication since 1983, the revised and updated 2017 edition features nearly 800 companies in a global tour of art in the workplace. Several million works of art are displayed in businesses and corporations around the world nearly as many as in art museums! Corporations have been spending millions every year purchasing art, and the total value of all of the art that is on display in the workplace is worth several billion dollars. So the most important patron of the arts during the past 70 years has been . not private collectors, government art programs, and not even museums, but corporations. The International Directory of Corporate Art Collections describes which companies have art collections, have commissioned art, developed art education programs, and which corporations have organized or sponsored art exhibitions or loaned art works from their collections. In three sections, the International Directory of Corporate Art Collections highlights art in the workplace from 1) Europe and Asia Pacific, 2) North America, and 3) South America and Mexico. The latest edition is an essential reference for artists, art collectors, museum corporate affairs officers, curators and directors, architects, art galleries, art advisors and consultants, art historians, art appraiser, and lawyers. Information provided for each program includes contact information, description, size of collection, art programs and sponsorships, status of program, and bibliography.
