Dec. 7 through March 20, 2022 – “Deaf Republic” by James Stewart in the Lobby, Kuhlman, and Mayhew galleries, and “Into the Light” by Ron Anderson in the West Gallery of the Richard M. Ross Art Museum, 60 S. Sandusky St., Delaware. Stewart’s paintings and ceramics interpret Ilya Kaminsky’s award-winning book of poetry “Deaf Republic,” in which a young deaf boy inspires a town’s resistance to military occupation. Columbus-based Anderson’s figurative paintings bring African American stories of music, sport, and dance into the spotlight. During the academic year, the Ross is open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The museum will be closed Nov. 20-29 for Thanksgiving break; Dec. 17-Jan. 12, 2022, for winter break; and March 5-13 for spring break. The Ross is handicap-accessible and admission is always free. Call (740) 368-3606 or visit owu.edu/ross for more information.
