Schenkel is a Marietta-based artist whose ties to the region include work as mural artist during the 1990’s, including the development of a children’s mural in Shawnee. He is a member of a collaboration of artists from ReSolve Studios, located in the Historic Harmar District of Marietta. . Victorian Brain Architecture is an interactive room-sized sculpture, which brings many iconic elements from the Victorian era together into a vibrant image for contemporary audiences. The exhibit makes a statement that resonates with the remnant towns of the area according to Schenkel. “From many remnant and cast aside pieces of architecture. one can make a beautiful new image, he stated. “Shawnee and the surrounding towns are a perfect example of this as they take their past and piece together for a positive future.”
The Victorian Brain will be on daily at the Tecumseh Commons from 11am to 2pm beginning Tuesday, April 27th through Saturday, May 2.
