GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN: What we know now

Poem inspires sculpture show


Sometimes one art form influences another. Columbus-based artist Juliellen Bryne can identify.

Inspired by the last line of the poem “In Prison” by Jean Valentine, “you who the earth was for,” Bryne had not just a title for her exhibition, but the basis for her series of sculptures.

The sculpture exhibition “you who the earth was for” is on display at the Miller Center for Visual Arts on Saturdays and Sundays through Dec. 14. There is no admission charge, but donations are accepted.

According to program notes, Bryne bases her work on the narrative and the figure. Bryne has what she calls a “cast of characters” who reappear in her work.

“you who the earth was for” includes animals like rats, horses and dogs, people, some of whom represent her family, and objects like the moon.

“This show is not my need to make a statement, but my task to say something,” Bryne said in the program notes. “The responsibility to keep the planet a safe place for humans and animals falls to humans.

Bryne has a master’s degree from Ohio State University.
