I remember like it was yesterday, but in truth it has been seventeen years since that moment. My sister, Lake, and I had just finished coating the last layer of chocolate icing on her birthday cake. We grabbed the candy nearest to us and artistically sprinkled M&M’s across our tasty creation. We had never been so proud, so of course our mother had to capture the moment on film. This flashback leaves me feeling like a little girl once again. I can’t help but savor the sweet taste of that fond memory.

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 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 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.
