A FATHER/SON STORY TOLD IN LETTERS & PHOTOS WELCOME GALLERY JULY 10 – AUG. 15, 2020 | OPENS JULY 10, NOON Solo Show by Greg Milo Building father-son relationships are complex at best when living side-by-side during a son’s growing up years. But what if your father is in prison? Akron area educator and artist Greg Milo’s solo autobiographical show is a poignant record of family ties. Mr. Fred and Mr. Greg – Love Beyond Boundaries runs July 10 to August 15 in the Welcome Gallery. ARTIST STATEMENT Mr. Fred and Mr. Greg is a literary exhibit that tells the story of a father and son. Separated by prison walls, they maintained their relationship through years of letters. For years, Mr. Greg kept the loss close by his side, secure and hidden from view. Mr. Fred and Mr. Greg is a son’s expression of an attempt to understand his father’s incarceration and the relationship they maintained. Through old letters and drawings, 8mm footage, and recently written short memoirs, I attempt to articulate the bond with my dad that held strong despite years of physical and mental distance.
