Hogtown Bird

Laser engraving on wood, 2016, 19"w x 30"h x 2"d

Capturing Toronto’s historic and diverse spirit, this piece is a tribute to one of the city’s most renowned symbols. The calligraphic approach revitalizes the symbol in a new way, almost bringing it into a different light to unveil the energy, rhythm, tradition, inclusiveness and character of our multicultural metropolis. Most important, the traditional calligraphic aesthetic has been given a contemporary twist that honors our iconic bird’s emblematic history with new vitality and relevance.

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.
