Jacobson's exhaustive research took her to thirty cities in eight countries to seek out the most innovative corporate patrons of contemporary art. Her conclusion: corporate patrons know the value of experiment, risk taking, and standard setting in business. Their art programs are a highly sophisticated management tool geared to enlightened self-interest. Work reveals not only how business has a vital role to play in the contemporary world, but also how art enhances the corporation: in selling an image in a competitive marketplace; in promoting corporate citizenship within increasingly demanding communities; and in experimenting with novel ways to educate and stimulate the workforce.
