Events and Fundraisers

Help Art Road bring art classes back into schools! Join us for special events and fundraisers.

Experiencing Perspectives

Tuesday, April 24, 2012 at 6:00 p.m.

If a picture can express 1,000 words, then we have a night of stimulating dialogue for you. At Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, we believe that art plays a critical role in creating a dynamic work environment, an inquisitive culture and sparks creativity.

While our workplace might not be a gallery, it does house cutting-edge art from local artists and graduate students from Cranbrook Academy of Art. To explore the art and the question of what role art can play in being a catalyst for change and inspiration, we invite you to join us for an evening celebrating the arts.

Art tours will challenge your perspectives, live performances will leave you breathless and the serendipitous discussions with artists and guests are sure to be memorable.

Please join us at 6:00 p.m. for appetizers and drinks as we experience perspectives from various cultural platforms.
