Irretrievable Violin

Anger is certainly a kind of baseness; it appears in the weakness of those subjects in which it reigns. Only men must be aware that they carry their anger with scorn rather than with fear so that they may seem to be above injury rather than below it. By breaking my violin into pieces and showing the five different stages of anger, I aim to let people be aware of controlling their emotions because the damage caused by excessive anger is irretrievable.

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.
