Life is always happening. What will be has been and will always be. Concepts of free will and destiny address the accountability and agency one takes in one’s life. Each step, a cog; each event, a wheel turned. Happenings compressing into probabilities into inevitabilities, moments eternally interconnected. The Futile Machine urges the participant to confront and question free will and predetermination.

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.
