Art Washing

Art Washing

 

'Art Washing' as a noun may be a new concept for some. This description is used when real estate developers install art galleries in urban areas to gentrify them and to justify higher rents. Consumers relate art to luxury and a better quality of life.

You may want to give some thought as to how you could use art washing in your marketing. For example, you could have an exhibit featuring local artists in your office. Turn your office into an art gallery.

If you want to attract a crowd and get publicity of one of the homes you have for sale, you may wish to sponsor an art exhibit in the home rather than staging it. Become the auctioneer and sell the art for your local artists.

Share your thoughts about how you can use art in your marketing.

Good Morning, Roy Kelley - That's a great thought! I would combine it with auctioning some off to give money to charity for some local need.

Thanks for the great idea!!!

I guess there is a term or name for every effort, and this one is no exception. What will they call it when the boutique cafes move in right behind the art galleries? Just wondering so I can be a bigger smart a__s.

Those boutique cafes will likely be displaying art on their walls.

Good morning Roy. I never heard this term before. Not a bad idea, but not sure about having it in a home unless it was a model in a new development. Beautiful flower.

Roy - you are on to something there.  Maybe sellers can stage their homes with art on the wall.

That's a good idea.  Some of the restaurant here will showcase art from local artists, and if somebody wants to buy the art they can.

One of the initial actions of the Trump administration was to suspend the previously announced reduction of the FHA mortgage insurance premium.
