Office Art Memo MEMORANDUM TO: Mr. John Blackman, CEO FROM: Steven Johnson, Art Director DATE: Date SUBJECT: COORPATE HEADQUARTERS OFFICE ART

I have discovered six spectacular pieces of art for the corporate headquarters offices; three of the selections are from the impressionist period, and three are from the post-impressionist period. The three impressionist paintings I have chosen are Monet Family in Garden by Edouard Manet, Garden at Giverny by Claude Monet and Dune Landscape off a Steep Coast by Edgar Degas (Sayre, 2012). The three post-impressionist pieces I have chosen are Bend in the Forest Road by Paul Cézanne and Anglers and Forest at Pont Aubert by George Seurat (Sayre, 2012). This memorandum contains information about the art selections that I have chosen for the office and where I would like to place each piece of art based on my interpretation of the meaning as it pertains to our corporation. I have added a brief description of each painting.
The first impressionist painting is Monet Family in Garden by Edouard Manet. In the left side of the painting, Claude Monet is gardening with a chicken and duck. Sitting under a tree in the center of the piece is Claude Monet’s wife, with their daughter lying next to her. Trees and shrubs form the outline of the garden along the sides and in the background. This piece of art has historical significance as it is one of Manet’s paintings in a new style, focusing on light and color all while capturing the moment, called impressionism (Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2014). Since our company is a family oriented business, I would like to place this piece in the reception area of the corporate headquarters to make this statement.
The Garden at Giverny by Claude Monet includes bright color patches of purple,…...

Memo on Miltary Art

...| Head Quarters United States Marine Corps | Date: 11/27/12 Re: Art Selections for the Office As requested I have selected six new paintings, three Impressionist and three Post-Impressionist works. The works are to be placed along the large wall in the main lobby of the building in the order listed below. The order starts with two works depicting everyday life while in theatre, followed by two emotionally charged works that have become iconic for our beloved Marine Corps, completed by two works of everyday day life in theatre. The idea is for the viewer to scan the works left to right; starting with an introduction to our mission: combat readiness; moving to two historical benchmarks, one from our past and one from the present; completed by two works depicting Marines in the mission. TITLE | Touchdown | ARTIST | Howard A. Terpning | DESCRIPTION | Marines exiting a helicopter in Vietnam. The Marines are in dark hues of earth greens, with dark shading and shadowing. The Marines are being dropped in a background of a golden field that undetectably fades into the golden/orange background. | STYLE | Post-Impressionism: Focusing more on the subject matter of the Marines, then the landscape. Captured as hastily as the Marines exit with rapid strokes, dark pigments, laid in rugged, thick paint. Solid patches of color make the background while the subject matter is more clearly defined. (Sayre, pp. 1092-1093) | HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE | This work is important......

...reader would best make. Wagner’s intended audience is quickly obvious to be newly ambitious, self-motivated businessmen and women. I realized knowing Bunn’s techniques of reading like a writer shed a new light on my reading experience. I found myself thinking about the author himself and his thought process while writing the article in his office chair in some sky rise with a killer view in New York City. It made me wonder if I will read like a writer every time I read from now on. It amazed me how one essay can change the way someone can look at a piece of writing. Reading Wagner’s article on gave me confidence to use these techniques in my own writings in the near future. Writings like business proposals, emails and interactions with other companies and industries, and even memos like the one you are reading now. Immediately I knew you all would prosper from this information. As industrialists you will be making the big bucks because of an education you dedicated yourself to, but just because you have a degree does not mean you are done learning. That is why I encourage you all to read Bunn’s Essay, which I will attach, a link to this memo. If we take pride in simple strategies of how we read and write as businesspeople, leaders, and more importantly as humans then we are setting ourselves up for success. I say “we, us” and “ourselves”, because this information is just as new to me as it will be to all of you. If you have any questions please email me, if not I......

...SALEM, OREGON INTER-OFFICE MEMORANDUM To: All Departments, and Officer Employees From: Colonel Pat Bacon, Director of the State Police Department Date: May 21, 2014 Subject: Planting Evidence, Perjury, and Falsifying Police Reports It has come to the attention of this department that there have been reports of questionable conduct from some of our officer employees. Police officers that are supposed to enforce the law, at times become more aggressive than the criminals themselves. How much corruption there is and knowing its characteristics are important steps to understanding corruption and then being able to successfully control corruption without illegal means is what is done. We uphold the laws, not bend them or break them to apprehend suspects, and criminals, “the bad guys.” Because of these reports, there is a serious threat to our law enforcement, which could compromise the values of our profession and our high ethical standards, and it is called “Noble Cause Corruption.” Noble Cause Corruption Noble cause corruption policing can be thought of as “doing something bad that will have a good end.” Peter Northouse This happens a lot when good police officers care too much about their job and the people of the community, and in order to get criminals off the streets they begin to do bad things because they truly believe that the overall “outcome will be good or justify the means.” Peter Northouse Examples of noble cause corruption can...

...Memorandum To: Stephanie Nissen From: Nichole Dennis Date: 11/16/13 Re: Bureaucracy Memo INTRODUCTION In 1992, Kristin Lardner was murdered by a man who should have been in prison. Kristin was a creative and intelligent art student from D.C., living in Boston. She began dating Michael Cartier a few months before he took her life. Michael was already on probation for numerous violent acts. Acts against other people and property. WEBER’S CONCEPT OF BUREAUCRACY Max Weber’s Concept of Bureaucracy consists of three basic theories. They are: Specialization of Labor, Hierarchical Order and Impersonal Rules. "The principle of office hierarchy and of levels of graded authority mean a firmly ordered system of super-and subordination in which there is a supervision of the lower offices by the higher ones (Stillman, 54). The concept of Hierarchical Order is directly related to this case study. Hierarchical Order basically means that everyone in a bureaucratic system has someone to answer to within the government. Because we have these checks and balances system, the government is supposed to run smoothly and properly. HOW THE HIERARCHICAL ORDER FAILED KRISTIN The following are a few examples of how the Hierarchical Order failed to protect Kristin: In 1988, Cartier was arrested and sentenced to six months in jail, non of which he served. In 1990, Cartier was arrested on multiple charges such as destruction of property and animal cruelty. Between......

Regents of the univesity of california | date: | March 27, 1976 | | | As everyone knows there is a new ruling for the Tarasoff v. Regents of the University of California. The ruling two years ago caused a debate on the ruling of professionals getting charged and those that weren’t, so changes have now taken affect. As professionals in the human service field it is important for us to know that now if a client expresses they have a plan to kill someone, it is our obligation to break confidentiality and inform the potential victim and or the police of the thoughts of your client. This may be a tough thing for some of us to do because of the ethical responsibilities we have with our clients but now this is a part of our legal responsibilities to protect the welfare of the society by having the duty to protect individuals who are bing threatened with bodily harm by a client naming it “duty to warn and duty to protect” (in the previous ruling it was only known as “duty to warn”.

Office Art Memo

...Office Art Memo Office Art Memo I have decided upon the six paintings or sculptures that will reside in the CEO’s office building. Out of the six, three are 19th Century Impressionist paintings and the other three are Post-Impressionist paintings or sculptures. The first one I selected was the Regatta at Sainte-Adresse by Claude Monet. This is a nice, relaxing photo that I would set up in the break room. It falls under the impressionist style because it captures the vision as if I was standing on the beach looking out over the water. Another painting for the impressionist era that I would put in the office building is A Matador by Edouard Manet. I would set this painting up in the conference room because it would remind the employees that sometimes we must stand our ground in order to accomplish the mission. The final painting from the Impressionist period is A Road in Louveciennes by Auguste Renoir. This one, much like the first one would be set in an environment to trigger relaxation. The first of three painting or sculptures I would select from the Post-Impressionist period is Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh. This is a powerful piece of art and very famous. It is meant to capture the transcendent essence of the stars and the night. Another painting from the Post-Impressionist period is The Scream. This painting was done by Edvard Munch. This is a great painting because it reminds anyone who sees it about the struggles of life. The last painting I would select for......

...FACTS Interspousal immunity is a common law doctrine which prohibits spouses from suing each other. The married couple shares the same identity in law, specifically under the husband name. In Callow v. Thomas, the wife tried to file suit against husband but could not due to the relationship of the parties. Her husband was negligent while driving which caused an accident in which she was injured .The marriage was annulled because she tried to file her claim. Once marriage was annulled she was able to get money from the accident. Interspousal immunity doctrine was modified by The Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts in the case, Lewis v. Lewis, decided in 1978. The wife sued the husband for her injuries caused by negligent driving. Under M.G.L.A. c. 209 § 6, “a married woman may sue and be sued in the same manner as if she were sole; but this section shall not authorize suits between husband and wife except in connection with contracts entered into pursuant to the authority contained in section two.” In Brown v. Brown, the wife filed suit against her husband. He was in “control of the premises and responsible for sanding, salting or shoveling after a snowstorm, that his failure to do so caused the wife to fall, and that she suffered fractures and incurred medical expenses in excess of $2,500.” The facts of the case based on the cases prior cases before did “not trench remotely upon privileged or consensual aspects of married life.” The couple in this case had an......

...George Martinez Hum-112  Professor Montgomery Assignment 2 – Office Art Memo George Martinez Hum-112  Professor Montgomery Assignment 2 – Office Art Memo This assignment was right in my corner. Ironically, as Assistant Directors of Operations for my company, I was tasked to do this very assignment a year ago to date. Impressionism can be considered the first distinctly modern movement in painting. Developing in Paris in the 1860s, its influence spread throughout Europe and eventually the United States. The term, first used sarcastically, was derived in part from the title of a painting, Impression, Sunrise (1872, Musée Marmottan-Claude Monet, Paris), by Claude Monet. ( The Impressionists loved painting outdoors, the ever-changing face of nature lent itself perfectly to their interests in capturing the moments of light and color. During my search, I choose the route of adding paintings rather than sculptures because the abundant selection of landscapes and patriotism pieces that are very desirable by our CEO Mr. Lee; who is also a New York City, Hamptons native. Mr. Lee has been a huge fan of works of Childe Hassam, because of this I decided to keep the theme throughout the interior of the office common areas and the chose to keep the post impressionist art within inside the executive offices. The three top choices for the impressionist period were selections from Childe Hassam, Flags, Fifth Avenue, Geraniums, and Lower Manhattan. (These selections chosen......
