Brenda and I, along with our friends Eric and Leana Tank went out to see the new Rauschenberg show at GRAM last night for the members preview. The show is stunning and a major Rauschenberg show coming to Grand Rapids at this time of our cultural development is just perfect.
The spirit of relentless innovation and collaboration that Robert Rauschenberg has come to represent is the very thing that West Michigan's future depends on. We are not living in a time where a business can sit back and say "We will do it this way because we have always done it this way". Detroit hung on to the Hummer too long. They were trying to ride a dead horse and it seemed like everyone could see it but them. We are living in a time were those who are not quick on their feet will be lost like a mastodon stuck in a tar pit.
Business owners of West Michigan adopt an artist. Let them help you wake up your innovative spirit. Let them help you become not only more beautiful but more winsome as well and watch your numbers begin to tick up. I promise.
