OCAD University art exhibition opens at Mercedes-Benz Financial Services

 

Thursday, October 22, 2015 - 4:00am

Ninety-nine works by 74 OCAD University students, alumni and faculty were unveiled October 21 in the Mississauga offices of Mercedes-Benz Financial Services (MBFS). At the opening of the Experiencing Perspectives exhibition, President and CEO Stefan Karrenbauer thanked the artists for bringing creativity and art appreciation to the workplace.

OCAD U alumni from the class of 1971 to the class of 2015 were in attendance, mingling with MBFS staff and invited guests. This is the seventh annual exhibition in the series, and for the past three years MBFS has been purchasing art from these exhibitions for its permanent collection. The company has similar initiatives with art schools in Farmington Hills, Michigan, and Fort Worth, Texas.

Experiencing Perspectives was made possible through the Faculty of Art’s Associate Dean, Outreach, Anda Kubis; Natalie Waldburger, Ada Slaight Chair of Contemporary Painting and Print Media; and Assistant Professor Jennie Suddick. The art will remain in place for a year.

OCAD University is grateful for the generous support of Mercedes-Benz Financial Services which includes The MBFS Direct Entry (to Drawing & Painting) Scholarship, The Drawing & Painting Medal winner award, and funding the DRPT graduate catalogue for the last seven years.
