Art Gallery Opening- Sandy's Scrapbook
The Thomases Gallery is proud to exhibit Sandy’s Scrapbook traveling from Kent State University’s May 4 Visitors Center. When Sandy Scheuer, a Youngstown native, was killed on her way to class on May 4, 1970, she was a junior speech therapy major and honors student at Kent State University, and active in the local Jewish community. Nearly 50 years after Sandy Scheuer’s death, her life is the focus of the first of four unique exhibitions to be presented on each of the four students by Kent State University’s May 4 Visitors Center prior to the 50th anniversary of their deaths in 2020. The exhibit features ephemera from scrapbooks and other objects Sandy kept over the course of her life that were donated by her family many years ago to the Ohio History Connection.
