Love Doves, a mural celebrating the LQBTQ culture and Pride month, was a collaboration with Joe Lanzilotta. The project was commissioned by Instagram as part of their #kindcomments initiative. Cleveland was one of five global cities chosen by Instagram for the mural project. The others were London, Madrid, Los Angeles, and Nashville.
Thank you to our friends and artists Mike Sobeck and John Paul Costello for helping us paint, and our friend Ashley Shaw with her help coordinating the project.
“I HAVE MANY” is an interactive public artwork that draws on So Fun Studio’s feelings of being overwhelmed (or not) by having so many things going on at the same time—plants, emotions, ideas, projects, emails, and on and on. Sometimes it makes us feel better when we tell others about whatever it is we’re having trouble with (or not having trouble with) by posting it on a rooftop billboard. The specific word selections in this artwork were chosen from So Fun Studio’s own experiences and stories we’ve heard about some of our friend’s experiences.
Dancing Machine is a project by So Fun Studio, a collaboration with John Paul Costello. Dancing Machine is a teeter totter with attached characters that dance as you teet and tott! The piece was commissioned by Ohio City Inc. for the 2017 Ohio City Street Festival.

In YOUR SHOW, the gallery setting is transformed from a passive viewer experience to an immersive viewer-as-artist experiment where the public is invited to contribute original and collaborative works in real time. This group show breaks down artist/non-artist barriers as participants get to creatively improvise with a series of mediums and prompts.
