WHO WE ARE

JPMorgan Chase Art Collection

Art is a catalyst for connection. The JPMorgan Chase Art Collection is one of the most established corporate collections in the world. Our mission is to connect clients, colleagues, and communities through art and the conversations it can start.

Founded over 60 years ago, the JPMorgan Chase Art Collection, branded as Art at Work, continues to focus on emerging, developing and under-recognized artists globally. Recognizing that artists are entrepreneurs and small businesses, our investment in their work makes a positive impact. Artists and the creative economy contribute to vibrant communities where we do business. Art at Work  brings that vibrancy into the workplace.

The Art Collection and Program are dynamic and evolving. Built on the solid foundation of Rockefeller’s vision, the collection has always embraced emerging contemporary art. Art at Work  reflects and aligns with the firm's 21st-century business principles and priorities: diversity, innovation, technology, sustainability, creativity, and excellence.

The JPMorgan Chase Art Collection began in 1959 when David Rockefeller, then president of The Chase Manhattan Bank, established the firm's Art at Work  Program, the first of its kind in the modern era. He believed that art elevates the experience of working at and doing business with our firm.  By integrating artwork within the architecture of our buildings and practicing a strategic approach to acquisitions, Art at Work  was and continues to be an exemplary model of corporate collecting.

Today it is the oldest and most established corporate art collections in the world, focusing on modern and contemporary painting, sculpture, works on paper, photography, and digital/video art on view in our corporate spaces across the globe.  The core collection is complemented by a selection of international artworks from legacy firms, from antiquity to the present day.
