My interdisciplinary approach focuses on economically marginalized people maintaining automobiles. The inspiration for this work comes from growing up around my family’s service shop. Opportunities for social mobility in the lower class are stunted because transportation is restricted by capital, leaving people dependent yet constantly on the brink of losing their wheels. Often, second-rate solutions are employed to exist within this system, yet they undermine it.

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.
