How Many Pieces of Artwork Do You Need?
While our minds immediately go to outfitting patient and resident rooms, waiting rooms and public spaces when planning an art program, we tend to forget that the experience begins the moment someone walks through your doors. That’s why it’s just as essential to procure pieces for outdoor areas, including the front entry, plazas and patios, to appeal to patrons as well as staff-only areas to energize and motivate your team.
How Will the Image and Materials You Choose Drive the Price?
As important as it is to know your budget, it is equally as important to know the factors that drive the price of a piece of artwork. There are three main factors: the image itself, the materials used and the size of the finished piece. By understanding these factors, you can develop a comprehensive art program that delivers the ultimate experience, all tailored to your budget and needs.
What Is the Price of the Piece Versus Its True Cost in Terms of Time and Quality?
When budgeting for or procuring artwork, don’t just look at the price of the piece, but consider the cost of the entire project. Every step in the procurement process, from searching for that perfect piece to having someone install it in your facility, takes time to accomplish. Plus, choosing a high-quality, highly durable piece rather than taking the less expensive route today can save you considerable costs over the lifetime of the artwork.
