Friday, November 18, 2016 - 5:00am

The eighth annual Experiencing Perspectives art exhibition at Mercedes-Benz Financial Services (MBFS) opened November 16 with a reception at the company’s Mississauga offices. Artists, MBFS staff and guests wandered the office space as though it were a gallery.

Over 90 works by students, faculty and alumni are positioned throughout the offices, corridors and boardrooms of the company with the goal of giving staff an inspiring, creative environment and appreciation of the work of emerging artists. The exhibition will remain in place for a year.

Stefan Karrenbauer, President and CEO of MBFS Canada announced that the Mississauga office made its fourth purchase of work for their permanent collection, a painting titled Vigilante (Watcher) by recent graduate Diego de la Rosa.  

MBFS has supported OCAD University to a tune of over $152,000 since 2009. The company has also recently pledged $64,000 over two years to support GradEx, the Drawing & Painting Medal Winner Award, the Drawing &Painting Entrance Scholarship and the Drawing and Painting Graduate Catalogue. The company’s Drawing & Painting Medal Winner award has been increased to $5,000, and the Drawing & Painting Entrance Scholarship has also grown to $5,000
