Mercedes-Benz Financial Services’ Experiencing Perspectives art program creates an environment for employees in which contemporary art plays a large role. The idea behind the program is to invigorate creative and inspirational work. The program offers annual art exhibitions, art tours, community conversations and other events.

On last month’s blog, from my post-surgical hospital bed, I wrote that there were many fine Detroit literary events that I would regretfully miss in September due to my fractured ankle. I’m home now, a 4-lb cast to the good, not getting out much, but I was thrilled to attend the 2014 Knight Art Detroit Challenge Grant Awards October 6 at Detroit’s Fillmore Theatre. It makes me proud to be part of the Detroit artistic community, with amazing ideas percolating up from everywhere – new and veteran groups, individual artists, literary, dance, drumming, neighborhood art projects – all being awarded for their creativity by the Knight Foundation’s vision and generosity.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in 2020 in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.
Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so for another year, through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
