Dwelling; A Snail’s Journey

Loading Events

Three larger-than-life snails adorn the front lawn of the Dublin Arts Council building located at 7125 Riverside Drive, Dublin, OH, USA. The artworks traveled from Milan, Italy where they were created by a group of six Italian-based artists known as Cracking Art. Formed in 1993, Cracking Art Group upholds a solid commitment to investigating social and environmental issues through the conception and creation of art.

Beginning with an opening reception on May 11, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Dublin Arts Council will unveil a temporary exhibition in coordination with the three giant orange snails on its grounds. The snails and the exhibition will spark conversation about human connection and our relationship with natural and artificial environments. 

Dublin Arts Council grounds will serve as the initial site and home for the snails, with the intention that the snails will travel to additional sites in the community. Through programming inspired by the concept of the snail, the Dublin Arts Council will invite the community to meet the snails in person and explore related themes. DAC will gather input from the community, encouraging those who live, work, visit, learn and play in Dublin to help build the snails’ story and journey.

Public Art is a conversation that sparks curiosity, creates meaning, and includes many voices. During the exhibition, the Dublin Arts Council gallery will be activated with creative prompts, sensory activities and contemplative practices inspired by the nature of snails.
