ISN’T IT COOL, I HAVE AN UNCLE SAM JUST LIKE AMERICA. I AM SARA ABOU RASHED, I A 19 YEARS OLD. I HAVE BEEN IN COLUMBUS FOR FIVE YEARS. COLUMBUS WAS NOT PART OF THE PLAN ORIGINALLY, BUT YOU KNOW IT WAS INTERESTING HOW WE GOT HERE, AND HOW WE CAME HERE FIVE YEARS AGO NOT KNOWING ANY ENGLISH. AND NOW, I AM WRITING AND PERFORMING A PLAY ABOUT LANGUAGE AND ABOUT BELONGING. ♪♪>>TONIGHT IS A VERY SPECIAL NIGHT, WE ARE AT DENISON UNIVERSITY WHERE SARA IS A SOPHOMORE.

WE DECIDED TO COME TO COLUMBUS. MY FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL I WALKED INTO ENGLISH CLASS AND THE TEACHER SAID “HERE IS THE BOOK WE ARE READING” MY EYES WIDE OPEN AS THE TEACHER HANDED ME OF A COPY OF THE ASSIGNED READING “THE ODYSSEY.” I SPOKE ABSOLUTELY NO ENGLISH AT THE TIME AND I THOUGHT IT WAS A DICTIONARY. SO I REMEMBER JUST GOING BACK HOME AND STARTING TO TRANSLATE EVERY SINGLE WORD INTO ARABIC. IF THEY ASK YOU WHERE YOU COME FROM SAY DETROIT, FALL SPRINGS.>>WE DO SOMETHING I THINK FAIRLY UNUSUAL FOR THIS FORMAT WHICH IS EACH SCENE IS BASICALLY END IN A POEM. SO WE ARE MIXING UP CLASSIC STORY TELLING IN THEATER AND POETRY. ONE POEM IS IN ARABIC.>>IT IS ONE THING TOO BE ASKED TO TELL YOUR STORY FOR AN INTERVIEW, OR FOR AN ARTICLE OR SOMETHING. BUT IT IS A WHOLE OTHER THING TO JUST STAND THERE AND TELL IT THE WAY YOU WANT IT TO BE REMEMBERED. THERE ARE PARTS EVEN I DON’T REALLY REMEMBER. SO THE FACT THAT I AM GOING TO TELL THEM TO HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE IS — IS TERRIFYING.>>SHE REALLY GIVES JUST A REAL HUMAN AND RELATABLE STORY ABOUT IMMIGRATION.>>I AM AMERICA AND OH, DEAR AMERICA, I LOVE YOU. EVEN AT TIMES WHEN YOU DO NOT LOVE ME. YOU KNOW I AM DELIVERING A VERY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE THAT IS MINE. ALSO PAYING TRIBUTE TO EVERY OTHER IMMIGRANT. AND AT THE END OF THE DAY ITS — IT’S OUR OWN EXPERIENCES THAT MAKE US VALID. [ APPLAUSE ]>>DON’T MISS YOUR CHANCE TO SEE SARA’S ONE-WOMAN PLAY.

IT’S ABOUT A POWERHOUSE GOP LOBBYIST WHO FINDS SANCTUARY IN ART. WHEN HE’S NOT WORKING ON POLITICAL STRATEGY, NEIL CLARK MIGHT BE FOUND IN HIS HOME STUDIO, WHERE HE SURROUNDS HIMSELF WITH JARS OF COLOR.>>DURING THE DAY I’M A LOBBYIST, POLITICAL CONSULTANT. I HELP PEOPLE GET ELECTED OR RE-ELECTED. ON THE LOBBYING SIDE I’M PROBABLY BEST KNOWN AS A HIRED GUN. I WAS IN MAUI VACATIONING AND I WALKED INTO A GALLERY, AND I SAW THIS MAUI PRINCE ON A PIECE OF WOOD. IT WAS MADE OF MOSAICS AND HE CHARGED $2,500 AND I SAID “GEE, I CAN DO THAT,” AND CAME HOME AND WENT ON THE INTERNET. I ACTUALLY TOLD THE PEOPLE AT MOUNTAIN MOSAICS, “GIVE ME A SAMPLE OF GLASSES, I’M GONNA — I WANT TO DO A GECKO, SO GIVE ME SOME GREENS.” I GOT BACK A TINY BOX THAT WAS — THAT MADE ME PRODUCE MY FIRST PIECE WHICH WAS A GECKO. IT WAS VERY SMALL, AND I SAID “OH, I THINK THIS IS GOING TO BE AN EXPENSIVE HOBBY.” ALL OF THE PIECES I DO MAKE USUALLY ARE GIVEN AWAY. IT’S ONE OF THE EASIEST WAYS TO GET MOTIVATED TO DO MORE IS TO LET THEM TAKE IT. MOST OF MY MARILYN PIECES ARE MY FAVORITE. I’VE DONE THREE OR FOUR MARILYNS AND IT’S REALLY A PIECE THAT PEOPLE WANT TO COME TO THE HOUSE, OR GO RIGHT TO IT AND TAKE IT OFF THE WALL. BUT JACKIE O, JACKIE ALSO GOES REALLY QUICK. I THINK I’VE MADE THREE JACKIES AND THEY WERE ALL GIVEN TO PEOPLE THAT WERE DEMOCRATS. I NEVER KNOW WHAT HAPPENS TO THEM. MOST OF THE PEOPLE ARE AMAZED THAT I EVEN HAVE THE PATIENCE TO SIT DOWN AND DO THIS. SO, I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE IN TOWN WOULD THINK THAT MY REPUTATION WAS ONE OF HIGH INTENSITY AND TAKE NO PRISONERS. SO WHEN I COME INTO THIS, THEY GO “THERE’S THIS SOFTER SIDE TO NEIL.” AND I DON’T LOOK AT IT AS A SOFT SIDE — I LOOK AT IT AS I LOVE THE ART OF GLASS. SOMETIMES THE PIECES COME IN A BIG SHEET WITH PIECES THAT I THEN CRACK. OTHER TIMES, THEY’RE ALREADY CRACKED AND I PUT THEM INTO JARS THAT ARE SURROUNDING THIS ROOM. SMALTI IS LIKE A BIG SHEET OF GLASS THAT IS BAKED LIKE A PIZZA. AND SO THE COLORS TEND TO BE REALLY BRIGHT. THE SMALTIS COME IN ORANGES, AND REDS, AND PINKS, AND — BUT IT’S VERY DIFFICULT TO WORK WITH BECAUSE IT COMES IN A VERY THICK PIECE, AND IN ORDER TO CUT IT, YOU USE ANOTHER DEVICE THAT IS VERY MUCH STRONGER. SO EACH PIECE, TO BREAK IT, PROBABLY GIVES YOU JUST A LITTLE BIT OF PAIN WHEN YOU’RE DOING IT. SO, I DON’T DO MANY SMALTI PIECES BECAUSE BY THE TIME I’M DONE WITH A PIECE, MY FINGERS ARE PRETTY WELL BEAT UP. THE HARDEST PART IN THIS PROCESS IS GETTING INTO THE GROOVE OF CRACKING THE PIECES. ONCE I’M IN THE GROOVE, I CAN CLEARLY MOVE QUICKLY. I’VE GOTTEN BETTER AT ESTIMATING HOW I’M GOING TO PUT A PIECE IN, BUT GENERALLY, IT GOES PRETTY QUICKLY ONCE YOU FIGURE OUT HOW YOUR ANGLES ARE GOING AND GET THE EXPERIENCE OF IT. THIS IS JUST A WELL-BOUND KIND OF GLUE, IT’S ENOUGH TO KEEP THESE ON UNTIL IT’S GROUTED. IT’S THE GROUT THAT IS REALLY GOING TO KEEP IT TOGETHER. THIS PARTICULAR PIECE IS FOR MY — AN ANNIVERSARY GIFT FOR MY WIFE. YOU KNOW, WHEN OTHERS ARE OUT PLAYING GOLF, AND THEY’LL PUT EIGHT HOURS INTO PLAYING GOLF TO SCORE 90, AT THE END OF THAT DAY THERE’S NOT VERY MUCH LEFT OTHER THAN A MEMORY. THIS, I GET THE MEMORY AND A PIECE THAT WILL LAST, PROBABLY FOR 100 YEARS. I THINK EVERYONE HAS IT IN THEM TO DO ART. DO THE BEST YOU CAN WITH WHAT YOU HAVE, AND I THINK IT’S — THAT IN ITSELF, GIVES YOU A LOT OF SELF-CONFIDENCE. ♪♪ ♪♪>>DAYTON IS WHERE WE FIND TEXTILE ARTIST FRANCES M. TURNER. SHE EXPRESSES HER HERITAGE THROUGH THE BEAUTIFUL HANDCRAFTED CLOTH DOLLS SHE CREATES ENTIRELY BY HAND. HERE’S HER STORY.>>WELL, TO START WITH, THE DOLLS THAT I MAKE ARE CLOTH, AND IT IS A BLACK SILHOUETTE THAT YOU SEE. I TRY VERY HARD FOR YOU TO BE ABLE TO SEE AN INDIVIDUAL. IT IS THE GESTURE, THE STATURE THAT A PERSON HAS. WHEN I’M DECIDING WHAT I WANT MY PIECES TO LOOK LIKE, IT’S THE PEOPLE THAT I ENCOUNTER. SOMETIMES IT’S THE WAY A GENTLEMAN STANDS, STANDS BACK IN HIS LEGS. THE LILT OF HIS HEAD. THE WAY A LADY LOOKS WHEN SHE’S WEARING A HAT BECAUSE SHE KNOWS SHE LOOKS GOOD IN IT. I FIND A LOT OF THINGS THAT I DO ARE BASED ON WHAT MY PARENTS DID AND WHAT THEY TOLD ME THAT THEIR PARENTS DID AND SO IT IS A HERITAGE THAT I EXPRESS IN THE WAY MY PIECES PRESENT THEMSELVES AND THE WAY THEY WEAR THEIR CLOTHES. YOU WILL NOT FIND ONE DOLL IN THIS HOUSE THAT DOESN’T HAVE ON A HAT. MY DAD WORE HATS, MY MOTHER WORE HATS. SHE WORE GLOVES, HEELS. I WANT MY LADIES TO LOOK LIKE LADIES, WHICH MEANS THAT THEY HAVE MANNERS. I WANT MY MEN TO LOOK LIKE GENTLEMEN BECAUSE THEY ARE MANNERABLE. AND THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT WAS TAUGHT TO ME BY MY PARENTS. MY MOM AND DAD BOTH WERE FROM LOUISIANA. MY GRANDMOTHER AND GRANDFATHER, THEY HAD 15 CHILDREN. THEY WERE HARD WORKING, GOOD, DOWN-TO-EARTH PEOPLE. MY MOTHER USED TO TELL STORIES SO DID MY DAD ABOUT PEOPLE AND THEIR LIFE GROWING UP IN THE COUNTRY, AND, THEY JUST SEEMED LIKE, JUST AN ADVENTURE. THE NAMES ARE THE THINGS THAT STUCK WITH ME. FIRST AND MIDDLE NAME, JOHN EARL, OR RUTH ANN, AND AUDREY ROSE WAS ANOTHER NAME THAT I ENJOYED HEARING, AND I LIKE THE LILT AND THE RING TO THE NAME. AND I CHOSE THOSE NAMES SOMETIMES FOR MY PEOPLE THAT MAKE THEM FAMILIAR TO ME. THEY APPEAR TO BE MORE THAN JUST A DOLL, THEY ARE FIGURES AND THEY ARE REAL. THEY ARE VIBRANT, THEY ARE ALIVE, THEY SPEAK TO YOU, AND THEY SPEAK TO YOU IN A LOT OF DIFFERENT WAYS. I WORK AT PRICE STORES AND I WORK ON TUXEDOS, AND I HAVE DONE THAT FOR THE LAST 25 YEARS, AND IT DOES NOT GET OLD. THERE ARE A LOT OF WEDDINGS, FUNERALS, SPECIAL OCCASIONS, BUT ONCE ALL THAT IS OVER THAT GARMENT EVENTUALLY FINDS ITS WAY AND IT’S RETIRED. AND, ONCE IT’S RETIRED THEN IT FINDS NEW LIFE WITH ME, TO BECOME WHATEVER IT IS I WANT IT TO BECOME, AND STILL LOOK ALIVE, YOUTHFUL, ADVENTUROUS, EXCITING. ♪♪ THE VERY FIRST QUILT THAT I MADE PROFESSIONALLY I DID FOR SARAH COGSWELL WHO WAS HEAD OF CITYFOLK. BECAUSE I HAD NEVER MADE A QUILT BEFORE, EVERYTHING THAT I EVER THOUGHT COULD BE A PART, WAS A PART, I MADE A SMALL DOLL AND A DOLL DRESS. I USED THE STONE BEADS AROUND HER NECK. I USED SUEDE CLOTH AND TRACED MY HAND. THERE’S THE EYE OF AFRICA, THE ALL-SEEING EYE. THEN THERE ARE 10 EYES, AND THEN OFF TO THE SIDE IS THE ONE HIDDEN EYE THAT’S ALWAYS WATCHING. AND IT WAS LIKE IT WAS A MAP RATHER THAN A QUILT, BECAUSE I WAS GOING FROM REGION TO REGION, PERSON TO PERSON, THING TO THING, AND USING ALL THESE COLORS. AND IN BETWEEN, I DID A VERY BOLD SATIN STITCH, SO THAT AS YOU LOOKED AT THE QUILT, YOU COULD GO FROM ONE PIECE AND ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER AND STILL BE ABLE TO SEE EACH PIECE AND NOT BE CONFUSED. AND, I BELIEVE THAT, THAT IS THE GESTURE AND THE MAINSTAY FOR THE KINDS OF QUILTS THAT I DO. I’VE GOT A LOT TO SAY AND I WANT YOU TO BE ABLE TO GO FROM ONE PART OF THAT CONVERSATION TO THE NEXT AND NOT LOSE ANYTHING IN BETWEEN. I AM AN ARTIST, AND I LIKE THE IDEA OF SAYING THAT I’M AN ARTIST. IT HAS BEEN A JOURNEY THAT I HAVE ENJOYED IMMENSELY, AND LOOK FORWARD TO EVERY MOMENT THAT I GET A CHANCE TO DO IT. ♪♪ ♪♪>>THAT’S OUR SHOW!

BUT, WHAT I THINK IS REALLY SUSTAINS THIS PEACE IS THE EVIDENT CARE AND LOVE. THAT SORT OF BONDS OF FAMILY THAT PERSIST IN THIS SITUATION. THEY ARE, DESPITE THAT DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES A REALLY KIND OF BEAUTIFUL AND TOUCHING IMAGE OF A FAMILY. ♪♪>>CATCH COLUMBUS AT ITS CREATIVE BEST ON “BROAD & HIGH” THURSDAY NIGHTS AT 8PM ON WOSU TV. ♪♪>>PRODUCTION OF “BROAD & HIGH” IS FUNDED IN PART BY THE GREATER COLUMBUS ARTS COUNCIL, SUPPORTING ARTS, ADVANCING CULTURE AND CONNECTING THE COMMUNITY TO ARTISTS, CULTURAL EVENTS, & CLASSES AT COLUMBUSMAKESART.COM.
