Our Art, Why Not Yours?
Through the efforts of One Workplace Design and Bay Area emerging artists, an art program was introduced into our Workplace 2030 pop up space to demonstrate the many benefits of curated workplace art on the space and users. And it had the intended results, humanizing and connecting that “return to the workplace” interactive environment.
The artists were chosen for their creativity and their connections to a greater community. Each participating artist selected specific pieces that could represent the different objectives of the workplace art program. The ultimate end goal of the program was to make this art available for purchase, and to donate some proceeds to local causes that mean something special to each artist.

About Workplace 2030
Workplace 2030, an interactive learning center, was designed to help employers understand the technology, design, services, and behaviors that employees must experience when they return to the workplace and into the future. Visitors toured the pop-up space in person and virtually for from September through January 2021.
Sensory design incorporating visual arts, sounds and scents augmented the physical design, technology and protocols to engage the whole human. Paintings and photographs from local artists/advocates in the space demonstrated how art contributes to well being, stimulates creativity and productivity, and supports connection, community, and culture.
