Event Category: 

Michael Ensminger has been welding for the past decade and is certified in gas, metal, arc and mig welding. His welding capabilities range from three-dimensional sculptures to decorative functional and structural art.

His work has an industrial appeal stemming from the environment he's worked in and the media he's worked on. Michael enjoys creating pieces out of media that others may consider scrap and also enjoys knowing that those pieces will be around long after he's gone.

Each piece is marked on the bottom with his initials M.E., and they are one of a kind.  Always up for the challenge of new projects, Michael loves the challenge of large-scale sculptures.

Event Date: 
Tue, August 6, 2019 (All day)
Event Category: 

Seth was diagnosed at 21 months as autistic and at age 18 was evaluated resulting in a career recommendation of "dry mopping".  At age 20 he took his first art class and by 23 was a featured artist on The Today Show.  Now 33, Seth has exhibited at the Cleveland Clinic, The Natural History Museum, hospitals, museums and universities throughout America.  In 2011, Seth came in first place in a world-wide United Nations competition and his art was placed on a postal stamp to promote autism awareness.  Internationally he has exhibited in Galapagos, Cayman, Curacao, Kiev and The United Nations.  In August Seth and his mother Debra will spend 30 days in France while his art is exhibited in several provinces across France.  

We will move into The Sustainability Center after the opening ceremony to cut the ribbon and open the art exhibit.  Cake will be served in celebration of the exhibit.  Seth and his mother Debra will be on site to meet and greet visitors.  Debra will give a brief presentation on Seth's "journey into art" and the challenges and rewards of autism. As it turns out, two of Seth's favorite things are amusement parks and wind turbines.  We got that!

Carl Jara
Event Date: 
Tue, August 6, 2019 (All day)
Stage: 
Event Category: 

Carl Jara is a lifetime resident of the greater Cleveland area. He attended high school knowing full well that he wanted to become an artist--taking and retaking every art class at school. In an act of desperation, his art teacher sent him to work with the stage crew.  There he met Tom Morrison, then a firefighter and President For life of the International Association of Sand Castle Builders. Tom took Carl under his wing, teaching him the basics of both sandsculpting and business. Carl moved on to study Fine Arts at the Myers School of Art in Akron, Ohio, studying Illustration and Graphic Design, all the while working with Tom and being introduced to a community of professional sand sculptors he never knew existed.

When it came time for his Bachelor of Fine Arts exhibition, he realized that illustration and graphic design were not his true calling.  What he did have was a desire to sculpt. His fifteen foot sand sculpture in the school gallery graced the front pages of local newspapers and was broadcast across the region on the evening news. It was the defining moment that launched his career.

He now holds nine World Championship medals, at least three dozen medals from other contests, and has been featured twice on Sand Blasters on the Travel Channel. He's worked and competed in eleven countries, more than two dozen states, and continues to carve out his living in sand.

In addition to sculpting, he accepted the position of Exhibits Artisan/Technician at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, where he gets to use his creative akills in a completely different manner.  He's helped install Sue, the largest T-Rex ever found, as well as articulated Lucy, one of the oldest hominid fossils yet discovered. So if you're ever at the Museum, give him a shout... you might just get a behind-the-scenes tour!
