Tiffin, Ohio — Tiffin University will host an art exhibition called “Building Character” from April 3 to May 5 at the Diane Kidd Gallery.

The exhibition features mixed media artworks created by Justin Michael Will and Will Wilson, both hailing from Cleveland. The event is open to the public and free of charge.

The exhibition reception will be held on April 14 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The artists will also give a talk at 5:30 p.m., and light refreshments will be served during the reception.

Justin Michael Will is a visual artist based in University Heights, Ohio. He uses illustration as a language and has studied at the Columbus College of Art and Design, Kent State University and Cuyahoga County Community College. Will managed a retail art supply store for almost 15 years and gained inspiration from his creative staff and the vibrant city of Cleveland.

Will Wilson is an artist who grew up in California and now resides in Cleveland. His art features bold and colorful characters, bizarre interpretations of the normal, and boundless imagination. Wilson graduated from California State University of Long Beach in 1997 and worked in finance before moving to Cleveland in 2007 to focus on his art. He has participated in several art shows this year and was selected to participate in the “Everything but the Kitchen Sink” show at La Luz de Jesus in Los Angeles.
