My usual method of slapping up a Chicago flag and a Queen poster seems somehow inadequate.

Help me decorate my office!

I just started working at a small trading firm, surrounded by a bunch of broey dudes with little to no interest in decor, except to say "there should be some decor." I have been tasked with sourcing this decor.
The space is large, there are many rooms, and many blank walls.
I have been given almost no guidance (no cheesy trading floor photos, nothing motivational, nothing depressing, maybe some plants) and, for all intents and purposes, an unlimited budget.
We have an open floor plan. There is a ping pong table and a hockey foosball game thingy. It's a very casual office, but should at least try for a classy and professional look. Right now it just looks like a dorm common room. Something that skews young and nerdy (but not, like, geeky) would probably be good. We're in Chicago, so anything local would be awesome.
I'm looking for suggestions of paintings, pictures, design aesthetics, etc. I'm very utilitarian in my tastes, and don't know how to make things look "nice". I have no idea where to even start, and my boss would like things to start getting pretty this week. Help!
