Occupied Warren Visual Entry Two

1 Comment

Today, I had a chance to meet a few artists participating in the project.

Led by James Shuttic, Executive Director of the Fine Arts Council of Trumbull County, the meet-up began at the Mocha House. Sign-ups, introductions, and project details were the focus of the hour. From there, the next move was into the cold weather for a stroll to the house or what I like to call, the “Occupied Warren Canvas”.

On the way to the house, James answered any remaining questions from the artists and provided a few more details about the project. Briefly, I discussed the communication side of the process in regards my team at the D5 Group. Our goal is to ensure every artist has a part in the visual storytelling process. After a few minutes, it was time to enter the house.

Due to the lack of electricity and heating, we could immediately feel the temperature drop once entering the doorway. Regardless, the artists entered with excitement and curiosity.

It was nice to hear the artists discuss their plans as we toured the house. I believe myself to be creative, but many of the art concepts I heard, blew my mind. I can’t reveal any of them but trust me, you’re in for a thought-provoking and visually stimulating experience.

Check back every Sunday (usually) for updated blog posts. Snippets of content can also be found on our Instagram channel @thed5group. In-depth details about the project can found here.

You can visit the Occupied Warren Exhibition  June 8th and 9th in the City of Warren, Ohio’s Garden District.

Signing out,
