The Electrostatic Man, the art of Miller Horns

Miller Horns - The Electrostatic Man

Inaugural show for Archived Artist Miller Horns. Miller is known for his innovative use of electrostatic and thermal color transfer prints of drawn and photographed imagery. His subject matter was primarily either personal, drawn from documentation of his everyday life experiences, or revolved around series of works related in style and theme, such as emotion (e.g. grief) or historical events (contributions of African-Americans to the development of Akron and Northeast Ohio).

Augusto C. Bordelois in the studio

Thank you to the voters of Cuyahoga County for providing partial funding for our Oral Histories Film Documentary Project and to the many members and supporters of AAWR who contributed matching funds for this project.

In culmination of this year long project, these short films on Archived Artists Harriet Moore Ballard, William Martin Jean, Bonnie Dolin, Augusto Bordelois, Jennie Jones, Douglas Max Utter and Anthony Eterovich by Ted Sikora and Charles Mintz, premiered here at the Archives on November 19th.

Also shown was a film made by Ted Sikora for The Cleveland Arts Prize on Shirley Aley Campbell.

As a regional museum the Archives is proud to support its artists through projects such as this.
