Detroit on a Platter

2011, Two-part urethane/various fillers, 15"diameter x 3.5"h (each)

The Detroit model was a project that I was working on for five years. In 2006 I began documenting downtown Detroit and gathering maps/data so I could create an
up-to-date model. Considering my background is in architecture/construction/model building, I wanted to offer a piece of Detroit to the folks that appreciate the transitions that the city is going through. Each model
was cast with different materials and left in a raw state for display. Being a native of the Detroit area and surrounded by the factory way of life, I believe that Detroit still has an uplifting spirit.

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.
