Good Mourning from The Sculpture Center

Artist Nicholas Fenell guest curates his first exhibition, Made in Mourning, in collaboration with the East Cleveland Township Cemetery (1621 E 118 St). The sculptures, videos, mixed media pieces and a “ghost” bike memorial, on view at both the Sculpture Center and the cemetery, are public and private displays of mourning made in both direct and abstracted response to loss.

The Dirt on Death, a series of free lectures by established scholars, expands the discourse.

Join us at the cemetery for family events – a picnic with FiveOne Experimental Orchestra, bike safety classes, a children’s bike decoration and ride, and tours, especially at Halloween. Please visit our website for a complete listing of events throughout this fall.
