The Wasmer exhibit, “ReFuge: The Last Days of Wonder,” opens Friday, October 22 and runs through Friday, January 28, 2022, as an interactive, immersive art experience around the theme of refuge. Conceived and curated by Wasmer Gallery Director, Anna Arnold, ReFuge invites visitors to explore gallery space that has been transformed into a surreal fantasy forest created by four invited installation and mixed-media artists from Cuyahoga County who will use recycled materials.

The dates of this intimate show are Sunday, October 17, 2021, through Sunday, January 16, 2022. On October 17, an opening reception from 2–4PM will include an artists’ talk at 3PM.
