Fall Scene With Cabins in Allen Gallery
Furniture is not enough to create a good atmosphere. Accessories, mirrors, candles, and very importantly art are what make a place special and unique. Just imagine a meeting in an office or a visit to a hospital; I bet most of us would feel much more at ease with some lovely pieces of art around. However, the owners of these hospitals and companies are not always willing to pay much for paintings and other pieces of art, and thus have to seek other ways to acquire artwork. If you are contemplating an art investment, you could contribute to the solution of this problem. Have you ever heard of art rental?

Bossypants Book Cover
Have you ever felt like you were trapped in a dead end job that was not right for you? Is self-confidence something you struggle with from time to time? Do you ever feel silly or misunderstood? Then Tina Fey’s book Bossypants is for you, and not in a preachy, self-help kind of way. Bossypants pokes fun at all the insecurities we face as human beings in a hilariously comforting way. By joking around about her own “flaws”, Fey lets her readers accept their quirks for what they are and be okay with saying “to heck with it!”
Whether you are upset because you can not fit into your skinny jeans or you are angry that your boss refuses to take you seriously – Fey helps you find a little bit of perspective for any given problem. She starts at full tilt right from the beginning and with hilarious detail and self-deprecating humor tells the story of all the momentous (and not so momentous) occurrences that got her to where she is now.
