About the event
GARDEN OF HOPE GROUNDBREAKING with Special Guests, Chagrin Falls Mayor William Tomko, Councilwoman Angie DiBernardo, Pam Spremulli, Chair of Chagrin Falls Arts Commission.
The dioramas are artist Dean Gillispie's imagination if, at the time, he had traveled down Route 66 in a corvette. From behind barbed wire and metal bars, an innocent man sentenced to more than 50 years in prison created images from his dreams of the freedom of traveling Route 66. These beautiful and detailed dioramas, which were just exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) PS1 Gallery in New York, are on display in the intimate space of the Wenk Gallery at Chagrin Arts. Join us to see these remarkable rites of art - created with prison contraband - and learn about the artist's commissioned sculpture, Imaginal Cell, to be installed in the Chagrin Arts 'Garden of Hope'
ON DISPLAY THROUGH NOV 19
