Mary Jo Bole’s (b. 1956) work is inspired by her family’s faded history of Victorian culture and her upbringing in Cleveland's rusty industrial landscape.
“I am a collector, a categorizer, and a seeker of the extraordinary."
Bole has exhibited in the US, Russia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Sweden, England, and Germany. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including an Andy Warhol Foundation Grant and a National Endowment for the Arts grant.
