FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

K9 Artist Presents Sculptural Baseball Exhibition to Benefit Cleveland APL

“Baseball Sculptures” is a multimedia exhibit celebrating the intersection of animals, art, and baseball

“Baseball Sculptures - The Tale of an Artistic Underdog” features the masterful sculptural works of Joey, a rising K9 star amongst Cleveland’s visual arts scene.  The family friendly exhibition takes place at The Sculpture Center in Cleveland on Saturday, August 31st from 4:00-6:00pm, and will feature a multimedia program curated by Cleveland musical duo the Baker’s Basement.  The event will spotlight Joey’s sculptural displays and will include baseball themed live music, storytelling, raffles, baseball themed concessions, and visual projections that speak to both the story of Joey’s awe-inspiring journey and to baseball, the sport that led him to create these sculptural marvels.
 

For the very first time, the public can witness in person the works of the sculptor known as Joey, wherein he presents his transformation of found objects (old baseballs) into sculptural phenomenons. This is much more than a presentation of a K9’s idle chewing; this is the story of a rescue dog’s journey from life as a stray to a capable and inspired artisan.  And because the artist believes in the cause for his fellow animals, proceeds from the event will go to benefit the Cleveland Animal Protective League.


Join the Baker’s Basement and the K9 sculptor known as Joey at The Sculpture Center for an evening featuring a one-of-a-kind immersive sculptural baseball experience and fundraiser. The purchase of a ticket to this event includes access to the exhibition, live music, 1 hot dog (including veggie dogs), 1 beverage (beer, wine, soda, water), baseball snacks (peanuts, cracker jacks, and popcorn), and the chance to enter a raffle to win one of Joey’s sculptures or other great prizes.  Additional beverages and hot dogs may also be purchased.
 

Entry to this event is $20 per ticket and advanced online purchase of tickets is strongly encouraged. Kids 12 and under are welcome for free.  Tickets can found on Eventbrite at this link:   Purchase Tickets to Baseball Sculptures Event
 

The Baker’s Basement (tBB) features the eclectic musical stylings of vocalist/drummer Kate Dedinsky and vocalist/guitarist Adam Grindler, and is known for their colorful songwriting, whimsical performances, and wildly handmade video works.  Upon certain special occasions, the pair assumes the form of their baseball themed alter ego, a mysterious act known as the Baseball Boogie Band.
