Small Steps are Giant Leaps: The Photography of Aaron Sheldon

7-10 p.m.


Aaron Sheldon came to us last year to ask if he could take a photo at WAKE & SHAKE and promote his kickstarter. One year later, we’re excited to host Aaron’s first gallery show, “Small Steps Are Giant Leaps.”
Artist Statement
The idea of “Small Steps Are Giant Leaps” came to me while I was riding the bus with my four year old son. What was a normal, everyday event to me had him completely transfixed. Seeing that look of amaze-ment on his face at something so commonplace really struck me. In that moment I realized that my son is an explorer, and the world that I take for granted, to him, is an amazing place filled with new sites and experiences. I knew then that I wanted to somehow document his journey of exploration.
Deliciousness provided by Darista Cafe. This event was made possible thanks to generous support from the Greater Columbus Arts Council.
$5 suggested donation
