Rather than making many trips, I pick up and carry everything all at once. On my way, if I see another useful thing, I will wobble towards it, carefully bend over, and without setting the rest down, place it on the pile. The pile grows heavy until it leaves deep groves in my palms. When it gets too tall or awkward it falls. The weakest things, those that were the least substantial or stacked in a particularly tenuous way, break. They are set aside. The rest can be stacked back together. Momentarily lighter, I pick back up my lazy man’s load. This is OK. I don’t care about broken pieces. I care about a full load.

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.
