what can the arts do for business?

More frequently you hear the question “What can business do for the arts?”, particularly now as the government continues to cut funding for the arts. The O Street Museum foundation prefers to ask “What can the arts do for business?”

the arts & brand recognition

Take a lesson from corporations and other institutions. They get a lot of mileage and public support from sponsoring art exhibitions. If they can use art to improve their image, perhaps you can too.

We specialize in the design and execution of image-building art programs so important to modern business marketing.

With an eye toward cost-effectiveness, we can show you how to achieve public recognition for your brand -- and also recover most or all promotional costs.


art & investment

The art market is a good one. One reason is because investments in fine art and antiques are exceedingly resistant to the ravages of a volatile market. But, like other markets, opportunities are missed and mistakes are made. The Mansion provides professional guidance and suggestions to help you make sound profitable investments.

For clients whose primary emphasis is in creating a look – without the investment -- our art leasing program allows for this option — as well as the opportunity to install rotating public space exhibitions, organized by our trained curatorial specialists.

With an eye for both new and internationally-known artists, we provide consultation on art investments that offer solid -- and on occasion spectacular -- appreciation over time.

But most of all, art is a joy.

art & the office

Galleries and museums serve an important purpose, enriching lives by promoting creativity and different ways of thinking -- but they are removed from most people's daily lives.

The O Street Museum Foundation brings art to the workplace. These exhibits provide employees a needed relief from the ordinary and project a successful image to your customers, without capital investment.

To assure that the environment stays fresh, The O Street Museum Foundation rotates the art on a regular basis, or brings in an entirely new exhibit. We are home to the most expansive gallery available to make your office a continued inspiration

art leasing

The Foundation has a collection of over fifteen thousand works of art and music memorabilia. Our wide-ranging collections offer you a unique opportunity to lease and display fine art through our art leasing & traveling exhibits program.

Our seasoned associates are positioned throughout the world. They acquire posters in Rotterdam, sculptures in Italy, chalk prints in Kyota, acrylics in Oklahoma and fine paintings at auctions in London and New York.

As an advisor and planner, clients receive carefully-crafted programs for personal and/or corporate art investments, public exhibitions, and brand recognition. For clients whose primary emphasis is investment art, our portfolio allows for that option — as well as the opportunity to install rotating public space exhibitions, organized by our trained curatorial specialists.

The O Street Museum Foundation is dedicated to serving cultural, scientific and educational needs, with a focus on the creative process. Our collection promotes and embraces life, from every culture, resulting in a broad collection of paintings, photographs, and sculpture and other objects of art — all of which we're proud to share with our guests.
