For many Americans, “home” represents roots, a launching pad, a personal oasis, a place to both escape from and to. As the Cleveland Print Room begins its seventh year of presenting shows in its gallery, its new show features a pair of artists exploring the meaning of “home” in America.
One of the artists, Da’Shaunae Marissa Jackson, is a Clevelander who is attracted to a variety of home styles from Tudor townhouses to mobile homes and high-rise apartments, and what they say about the residents who live there. Her show, Model Homes, features her feelings about these connections.
Juan-Si González is a Cuban exile living in Dayton, whose contribution, American Playgrounds, was photographed as he traveled around the Midwest, attracted to deserted spaces, which alluded to the presence of past or future occupants.
It opens with a free reception Fri 1/10 @ 5-8pm. The two artists will be giving a gallery talk the following day Sat 1/11 @ 1:30pm.
