Local artist Jesse Mooney-Bullock’s hand-carved wooden puppets allow the multidisciplinary artist (who works in woodworking, sculpture, painting, performance and sound), to create a completely new, one of a kind theatrical event. The graduate of the School of Art Institute of Chicago, who has worked in set design and puppetry, created movable wooden sculptures for his exhibition at Brazee Street’s gallery One One.
Funded by a grant through the Cincinnati Arts Ambassador Fellowship program, Bear Boy is a hand puppet show about a boy’s journey to find a way to be himself. Mooney-Bullock will give three performances of his original play for gallery visitors this Saturday, Feb. 16, at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Children free, adults $5. 4426 Brazee St., Oakley. brazeestreetstudios.com.
