People in charge may know the distinction between high art and low art and how to explain to others. I consider “high art” as a bright part of the contrast; and “low art” is the opposite. This means that between high/low art is the distinction of high/low culture; like the high or low audience in performance; it is art/non-art. In my opinion, art is art no matter if it is a well-known or famous artist or not. The whole idea of each piece art is the values and the meanings and what it makes you feel. Art involves a wide variety of media and effects that everyone can see it in one way or another. In these day business owners try to understand that displaying artwork in the workplace, it can increase employee efficiency, productivity, and creative. Distinction between high and low art can be explained to non-experts through examples. By highlighting that high art examples include music, poetry and fiction while low art examples include wood carvings and dancing can the distinction best be understood and explained.
Working as a Team around a diversity of people at the office, we can learn a lot from them. The start is when we found a productive way to coexist and collaborate. Art in the office can: Inspire and unlock creative potential. Innovative ideas, in turn, lead to new business practices and promotional campaigns, which ultimately create economic growth. Art helps connect with clients; by hanging photographs in the office or waiting area, they can make a customer feel comfortable and even connect with them on an emotional level. Art affects the atmosphere of a room; a company that hangs art (photographs and paintings) will help their employees to feel happy, and it will create a general sense of calm in the office. Art improves employee experiences; by stimulating ideas, and promoting feelings of calm. Art can make a difference in employee satisfaction, productivity, and wellbeing. Art can be used to promote your brand; images of your company, for example, inspire pleasant feelings in viewers, accentuating the longevity of your business.
Another important factor is how does context, such as different employee roles or different times of the year, affect the analysis. As HR is important to know all functions of each employee at the office, maintain the interaction of employees detailed and know them individually to keep the order, discipline peace, and harmony among them. Each person interprets art differently. We suggest developing the interpretation skills that could be affected when we introduce and install a disposition for looking at visual art. Approaching the process of understanding with a toolkit of thinking skills is particularly useful about visual art. This means that can be contradictory, multiple and are certainly open-ended and unstable. Younger companies that focus on culture see a huge payoff. Companies with high active cultures are now the most in-demand. Flexibility, entertainment, and bright, colorful offices and art make these companies a fun place to work. Another factor to take in mind is to recognize which displays should be unequivocally permitted/not allowed in the office. While we are in a country free of speech, we need to be considerate of others wants and desires. In many cases, we spend more time with our coworkers than with significant others, parents, best friend, siblings, etc. Keeping this is mind, co-workers are looking for qualities for the “art” they want to display. Many times, looking for pieces that will remind them of home or allow for comfort.
Displays of academic achievements should be permitted in the office because it enhances the image people have over the office holder while displays of party attendance should not be permitted because it may paint a negative picture about the office holder. Co-workers should look for qualities such as the mood, message, and relevance in the kind of art they want to display in the office because by doing so,they are able to set a good mood in the workplace, create a positive impression, and more importantly pass across a relevant message related to work.
