As a Jewish girl, Nelly Toll was in secret hiding with her mother during the Second World War in Poland. Her artwork depicts her real and imagined world during the Nazi occupation. She dreamed through her watercolor paintings, which showed her hope and imagination through an unfathomable hardship.
“The historical backdrop of World War II and occupied Poland provides context for Nelly’s personal narrative and illustrations; but this is not an exhibition about the Holocaust,” says Alexandra Nicholis Coon, executive director of the Massillon Museum, the organization traveling the exhibition. “Rather, it is a powerful story of surviving even the darkest of times through imagination, hope, and love.”
Today, Dr. Toll uses her personal experience as a platform to address bullying, emphasizing the importance of exercising compassion for all people. Toll’s most complete collection of original artwork will be on display at the Decorative Arts Center of Ohio from September 15 to December 23, 2018.
A full day of celebrating everything Fall! Food trucks, live music, kids activities, and lots more.
FRONTIER SPIRIT 1799 Experience the trials and tribulations that the first settlers in the Ohio Territory endured as they fought for and carved out a home. Frontier Spirit 1799 showcases the events and lives of these settlers featuring 5 or 6 scenes from early Fairfield county in an outdoor theater. You’ll laugh, cry and learn of the price paid for what we now know as Lancaster, Ohio.
FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY Frontier Spirit is a step back into time that can be enjoyed by all ages. A tent village shows the life of the early settlers with demonstrations by skilled craftsmen of cooking, soap making, blacksmithing, spinning, weaving and more. The large marquis tent provides a place for music by many musicians on various period instruments, speeches by local dignitaries and various skits. Games and activities for children are also part of the village entertainment.
Concessions are available at very reasonable prices, with snacks, drinks and food-including bean soup cooked in iron kettles over an open fire. The village is open from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm both days. A church service by a circuit preacher is featured at 9:00 am on Sunday morning. Bring the family and enjoy a little bit of living history. This is a free event, but donations are greatly appreciated.
In case of rain, the theater may close but the village is always open.
