Home Is Where the Art Is
Tim & Lauren Schrager Collection at Perennial Properties, Inc.
The collection of Tim & Lauren Schrager includes a wide range of artists from emerging to mid-career to established. The collection is a diverse group of objects including painting, sculpture, photos and videos.
As the collection has grown over the years, so too has the desire for more space to display the collection. Little by little, objects began making their way from our home to Tim’s corporate office. Eventually, the office was redesigned to enable installing art work in a thoughtful manner throughout every room of the company’s compact, corporate headquarters.
The office building’s high ceilings and open floor space has allowed us to acquire larger objects that simply would not work in most domestic settings. Supporting artists creating ambitious works of art has been a highlight of our collecting experience.
With that in mind, we are committed to supporting artists by both building our collection and by being involved in the arts community. We still dedicate time to seek out young, emerging artists and believe that this is one of the most effective ways to support artists and the creative community, both locally and nationally. We also believe in the intrinsic value of art and we enjoy sharing our collection, which is installed in our Atlanta home and at Tim’s place of business.
Admission is $25. Please purchase your tickets here.
Tim is the founder of Perennial Properties, Inc., an Atlanta based multi-family and retail real estate development and management company. Tim is Chairman Emeritus of Atlanta Contemporary.
