The Standard Opens Employee Art Gallery
Wednesday, May 13, 2015
This special gallery is a part of the Standard’s The ARTS PROJECT, which stands for Artists in Residence at The Standard.
Although art shows aren’t usually hosted by insurance companies, The Standard’s HR leaders feel that “when employees are able to bring their whole selves to work, it creates stronger connections among employees, and ultimately builds a stronger culture.”
With that in mind, the company’s gallery will feature over 60 pieces of art made by the 35 of The Standard’s employees.
One of the artists is Nova Moisa who was recently featured in The Oregonian for her philanthropic photography project that helped bridge the economic divide at Parkrose High School.
The gallery is only open to employees of The Standard.

The organization’s newest exhibition, A Community on the Move, directly builds on two highly successful collaborations with the Oregon Historical Society and reflects the all-volunteer organization’s increasing capacity to create meaningful opportunities for community dialogue and learning.
