Before You Die

2011-2012, Mixed media installation

My artwork favors a positive view of life; I want my art to be uplifting and increase happiness. Before You Die allows viewers to actively contribute to an artwork. The top string contains the items on my personal bucket list. The middle string contains responses from people I came across. The bottom strings allow people to contribute their own life goals. The results are intimate; each answer is a glimpse into the life of the responder. I hope that by reading others’ responses, people contemplate their own life goals and actively work to complete them.

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.
