(Tallmadge, Ohio) On Wednesday, October 30th at 10:30 a.m., Mayor Sara Drew will be hosting an art reception at Stow City Hall. Three custom chandeliers from Summit DD’s Dream Out Loud Studio will be unveiled in the atrium.
Since taking office in 2012, Mayor Drew has been a strong supporter of Dream Out Loud Studio. Various works from studio artists are regularly on display and for sale throughout city hall. The three custom chandeliers were recently commissioned to be permanent fixtures in the atrium.
Ranging from four to seven feet in size, the chandeliers are constructed from three-dimensional, Chihuly-style accents that mimic the look of blown glass. Surprisingly, the vivid works are created entirely of plastic bottles.
Summit DD’s Dream Out Loud Studio is a place where people with developmental disabilities enjoy personal expression, independence and artistic satisfaction. It’s a creative outlet for individuals to flourish, both as artists and valuable members of their community.
The County of Summit Developmental Disabilities Board is a levy-funded agency that provides services to more than 4,000 individuals with developmental disabilities and their families in Summit County. It is the organization’s mission to offer a lifetime of services and supports to eligible individuals and families that enable people with developmental disabilities to work, live, and learn as equal citizens in their communities.
