What’s Important

My first few weeks in graduate school I thought What am I doing here? How am I supposed to make meaningful work? While my work didn’t need to be socially or politically conscious, I was. I want my work to reflect my values and my voice in an inspiring way. But isn’t the dreaded f-word, feminism, dried up? Isn’t socially aware art tiring? And what about people’s reactions to my art? I realized my anxiety was rooted in my experiences as a woman—being told there are more pressing issues to talk about or think about, that I’m just going through a radical phase. It’s so easy to feel disenfranchised when you constantly hear that you’re insignificant as a human being.

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.
