Neuberger Berman - Corporate Art Collection

Corporate Art Collection

The company's web site states: Contemporary art in the workplace has been part of Neuberger Berman’s corporate culture since 1939, when renowned collector Roy Neuberger co-founded the investment firm. In 1990 the firm began developing its own art collection. Today, the Neuberger Berman Collection supports the work of contemporary artists, prominently displaying their work in the firm’s hallways, reception areas and meeting rooms. The collection creates a stimulating and enriching environment for both employees and visitors.

"Why contemporary art? We believe that the challenge of investing is to always stay current, to cope with a new and ever-changing business environment. Art helps us look at the world with a fresh perspective."

The firm's corporate art collection was absorbed into the Lehman Brothers collection and currently has "about 900 works." More than two-thirds of those pieces were purchased by the firm from the bankrupt Lehman Estate, with the remaining pieces sold at auction in 2010.

Famous quotes containing the words collection, corporate and/or art:

    Psychobabble is ... a set of repetitive verbal formalities that kills off the very spontaneity, candor, and understanding it pretends to promote. It’s an idiom that reduces psychological insight to a collection of standardized observations, that provides a frozen lexicon to deal with an infinite variety of problems.
    Richard Dean Rosen (b. 1949)

    The corporate grip on opinion in the United States is one of the wonders of the Western World. No First World country has ever managed to eliminate so entirely from its media all objectivity—much less dissent.
    Gore Vidal (b. 1925)

    The art of watching has become mere skill at rapid apperception and understanding of continuously changing visual images. The younger generation has acquired this cinematic perception to an amazing degree.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)
