More About BACP and The 2nd Annual Art in Lobby Tour
Eager to learn more about the growing phenomenon of commercial beautification and lobby art in New York City office buildings, why a number of prominent landlords and owners are investing millions in their buildings? The idea for the tour was presented by Cindy Farkas Glanzrock, YM/WREA member and president of Glanzrock Curatorial Services and her Building Art Curatorial Programs (BACP).
“Art draws people into a lobby, makes the buildings unique, provides energy and community and, equally important, creates the attention and adds significantly to attracting better tenants for building owners, managers and developers” said Glanzrock.
