Hey, Felicia, do you have time for a quick conversation?
Sure, boss. What's up?
I was walking through the hallways of our office yesterday and it struck me that we could use a little beautification around here.
Are you thinking about repainting the hallways?
Well, actually I was considering buying some art to display around the office and factory grounds.
I think we could all benefit from a little touch of culture, don't you think?
Yeah... it's a great idea. I think looking at beautiful things helps lift morale.
Yeah, that's what I was thinking.
It might brighten up the office and lift people's spirits a bit as well.
I'm not really sure about what kind of art to buy though.
That is a tricky issue. Everyone has different tastes.
You know the old expression: "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
What about you Felicia? What kind of art do you like?
Well, actually I like abstract modern art.
I love the works of Pablo Picasso and Jackson Pollock.
I see. So you're a bit of a modernist, huh?
I feel modern art is open to interpretation.
Each person looks at the painting with a different understanding and gets a different message from it.
Sometimes I find landscape paintings or more traditional art to be a bit boring.
Yes, I would agree with that. I don't want any pictures of fruit in bowls hanging on our walls.
It needs to be something inspirational!
How about you, boss? What kind of art inspires you?
I'm a big fan of photography.
I like real images captured by a camera.
They're so genuine, and I find that I don't get tired of looking at them over and over again.
