Today's Cincinnati Spotlight

Now on display: American Primitives, an ambitious, challenging, and thought-provoking body of work by acclaimed artist Todd Slaughter encompassing both levels of the Weston Art Gallery. During the last thirteen years Todd Slaughter’s (Columbus, OH) artwork has addressed the perception that safety is synonymous with isolation and privilege in the gated communities of suburbia and urban high-rises. Through a series of sculptural tableaux, American Primitives suggests parallels between the American individualism defined by Thoreau and Emerson and its contemporary extreme—isolationist groups and individuals who feel that they, too, are manifesting core American values.
