Art is a catalyst for change. At Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, we experience this change every day and believe that contemporary art plays a role in creating a meaningful and inspirational work environment. It facilitates conversations that bring about dynamic ways of seeing, thinking and working.
The Experiencing Perspectives art program encompasses annual art exhibitions, art tours, community conversations and other art events. The program celebrates several creative partnerships at Mercedes-Benz Financial Services. Our art program began in 2002 when we partnered with the nearby Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, exhibiting graduate students’ art in our Americas headquarters in Farmington Hills. In 2008 we expanded the program to Texas through partnerships with the art schools of Southern Methodist University and Texas Christian University. The schools provide art from their students, alumni and faculty for our MBFS facility in Fort Worth. From 2009-2019, we joined with OCAD University in Toronto, Ontario, and exhibited art by OCAD University’s students, alumni and faculty in our Canadian headquarters in Mississauga.
As the program grows, we continue to forge connections between art and business, business and community. We hope Experiencing Perspectives continues to be a source of inspiration and collaboration.

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.
