There are countless character, movies, music and books under the classification of public domain usage.

Everything from the legendary works of Shakespeare and Beethoven to iconic characters like Dorian Gray and Frankenstein (doctor or monster), is available for anyone to use however they wish.

A pop-up exhibit this Saturday asked a collection of Ohio artists to create pieces using public domain properties as inspiration.

Organized by artist and filmmaker Celia M. Peters (an Ohio native working in New York City), “Public Domain” features a dozen artists presenting works with a diverse array of mediums, style and forms.

Columbus-based Papernoodle’s intricately beautiful low-relief paper sculptures (pictured) will share space with photography and video works, fashion, design and even pop-art paintings (by fellow Cbuser Joss Parker).

The work promises to be intriguing, given the artists presenting, as well as accessible, given the subject matter, making the pop-up not-to-miss.
