Alumnus uses real food to create most recent exhibition

Alumnus John Joseph McCutcheon (CCAD 1979) used actual food as the primary material in his most recent exhibition, Play Date, which opened Dec. 4 in the Short North.

The show features the photography and installations of Katelyn Cody and McCutcheon, who allow viewers to spy on the lives of tiny toy people as they row a boat across a bowl of soup or paint giant strawberries.

McCutcheon used real strawberries in his "Play Date" installations.

McCutcheon is an installation artist, life coach, and owner and director of Sean Christopher Gallery, a fine arts center, and Health Perspectives, a holistic life coaching and counseling private practice. He received his MFA in sculpture from The Ohio State University.

The show is held at Sean Christopher Gallery at Health Perspectives, 815 N. High St., Ste H&N, and is open Wednesday–Friday, 3:30–5:30 p.m., and Saturday 1:00–3:00 p.m., and by appointment. The exhibition runs through January 29.
