“The advantages of collecting conceptual art improve the image of your company by: a. Making your public more aware of what you are doing in the community. b. Assisting in developing a more fully rounded personality for your corporation by adding a cultural dimension. c. Providing a bold, unique, and exciting element in the presentation of your products and services. d. Promoting greater public acceptance of your corporation and its products and services by making yourself more attractive and visible in the marketplace.”

“I began to realize, as well, that the intelligent and sensitive people in my environment had experiences with non-art portions of their visual world that were of such quality and consistency that the demarcation of similar experiences as art would make no appreciable difference; that perhaps mankind was beginning to outgrow the need for art on that level; that he was beginning to deal with his world aesthetically.”
