                            Considerations for Acquisition of Corporate Art

Appoint those within the company responsible for the selection and placement of the artwork and sculpture.
Determine if you wish to begin an art program that will become a company asset or if you are acquiring artwork for decorative purposes as opposed to investment purposes.  (To acquire art as an asset requires a rather hefty art budget.)
Identify the areas to be addressed with art and/or sculpture
Prioritize these areas as to:
1.  Which areas you would like to complete first – i.e. the most crucial through to      the less visible areas.
2.  Percentage of the budget to be earmarked to the various areas – i.e. Reception and Executive Suites usually rank first, then Board Room, then conference rooms (there are often varying levels of these within an office plan). 
3.  If there are numerous departments, consideration should be given to the   level in the budget hierarchy as well as to targeted completion preferences.
4.  Private and individual offices are often ranked according to the position of the occupant in each in the budget.
5.  Then there are the areas in hallways, cafeteria space, support personnel areas, etc.
Type and level of art desired.  Much of this will be determined by the budget you set, however, consider whether you are interested in originals in certain areas then stepping down to high grade limited edition (multiples) prints, then multiples at a lower price point, then down to posters as the least expensive form or artwork. 
Do you like mixed media work, fibre, tapestries, etc?

Certainly, and quite important, are you considering sculpture—free-standing, table or shelf top, wall?

Subject matter and genre—Would you like local scenes, local artists, or, if applicable, work that suggests what your company does? 
Do you want people in the images or do you absolutely not want people? 

Are you interested in traditional, contemporary representational, contemporary non-representational (abstract)?
