A Strange Holiday: an Aesthetic Examination of the Sam Sheppard Case

60 years ago, the murder trial of Dr. Sam Sheppard made international news. Ross Lesko curates a thought-provoking exhibit about the sensationalized trial and ramifications that still reverberate today. The house in which Dr. Sheppard was arrested is BAYarts’ own Fuller House, which similarly made international news 30 years later when it was moved to its current location via Lake Erie. This special exhibit will extend through September in the Sullivan Family Gallery. Share your memories of the Sheppard trial or the Fuller House exodus by email to
