This story about Microsoft’s art collection ran last week. We have a company museum, but that’s about computers. The artwork hangs in the hallways of our buildings. It’s one of those things that you really get accustomed to working here and then one day you’ll be walking down a hall going to some meeting and a piece will really catch your eye. I love the new piece they put in the upstairs lobby of building 19 (I’ll try to take a picture), but not everyone does. I guess that’s the point.
I just saw the Lawrence Jacob exhibit at the SAM, so I was excited to hear that we have some of his works as well. Who knew we were such a well-cultured bunch? More on the collection here.
