The Influence of Art Infusion on the Perception and Evaluation of Consumer Products

This research investigates the phenomenon of art infusion, in which the presence of visual art has a favorable influence on the evaluation of consumer products via a content-independent spillover of luxury perceptions. In three studies we demonstrate the art infusion effect in both real-world and controlled environments, using a variety of stimuli, in the contexts of packaging, advertising, and product design.
