My two favorite kinds of people in the world are artists and art lovers/supporters. Charles Bluestone, of Bluestone Law Group, is one of those people! As a long-time supporter of the arts, Bluestone is using his creative problem solving skills and art connections to hatch a plan that will help raise money for the Ohio Arts League. Founded in 1909, OAL serves over 600 artists with support and education, but due to recent financial struggles they have lost their gallery space.
Bluestone has hand-selected 48 Ohio artists and is supplying them with an ostrich egg to create a one-of-a-kind artwork for the exhibit, Art 360°: Contemporary Art Hatching Across Ohio, which will travel to several museums across Ohio starting in Spring 2016. In addition, an 80-page, full color exhibition catalogue and poster will be designed by CCAD students. The catalogue will feature both a scholarly essay by art historian Ann Bremner, former Publications Editor for the Wexner Center for the Arts, and a poem by Rikki Santer inspired by the artworks.
Right now, Bluestone is looking for additional funding and support to finalize the website and catalogue for the exhibit. Would you like to support this egg-ceptional egg-hibit?
