The work that I make focuses on emphasizing the black experience and history, specifically moments, people and objects that are not well known to the mainstream narrative. This work is based on Underground Railroad quilts that were created by slaves. Each pattern contains a secret message that would give those who understood it the necessary directions for escaping to freedom in the North.

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.
