“Dark Matter, New work by Robert Thurmer.” Opening 6 – 10pm.  Renowned local artist Robert Thurmer wants to explore how we recognize art objects. He’ll do just that in Dark Matter, his new exhibit @ Arts Collinwood.  “Specifically: what are the markers for ‘art object’ that are generally recognized without specialized privileged information. To explore these ideas, I started making these recent sculptures in an attempt to make my own ‘found’ art, what I like to call paraphrastic objects – stand-ins that refer to certain kinds of conventional art objects.”  View his sculptures — which embody an exploration of this theme — through Sun 6/4. Arts Collinwood, 15605 Waterloo Rd., Cleveland, 216.692.9500
