Cheer Up

2011, Mixed media installation

Cheer Up presents viewers with a bright display of recycled CDs which I screen printed. Amidst the colorful, swirly designs are four sets of words: various ways we greet, greetings from various cultures, terms of endearment, and cheerful adjectives. I love screen printing because it allows me to create series which are often on recycled items. This is a reminder that art can be created out of anything — even what some consider trash. I want to encourage people to let their personalities shine through and not to fear what others may think.

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.
