The Dublin Arts Council will bring a message from a 95-year-old Holocaust and Russian POW survivor to the community.

"Alfred Tibor: Hatred Doesn't Work" will be on display at the Dublin Arts Council, 7125 Riverside Drive, from Sept. 29 to Dec. 19, spreading a message against hatred.

The exhibition of small-scale sculptures and maquettes by Tibor, a Columbus resident, came to the Dublin Arts Council through collaboration with Upper Arlington.

"I live in Upper Arlington and they asked me to speak to the community about the importance of public art and how we created a public art program in Dublin," said David Guion, the Dublin Arts Council's executive director.

Upper Arlington had received artwork from Tibor and was deciding how to display it. When Guion got involved he saw Tibor's work and thought it would be great to display in Dublin.

"It's great to collaborate with another suburb," he said.

The exhibition comes to Dublin with the help of funding from a PNC Arts Alive grant which has gotten others involved.

The Dublin Arts Council has partnered with the Columbus STEM school, Metro High School, in the project.

Students from the school have been at work on an augmented reality addition for the exhibition.

"You can take a smart phone or tablet and scan it over the sculpture," Guion said. "There's a marker on the sculpture that triggers a video and Alfred talks about the story or motivation behind the work."

Elementary and middle school students from Columbus and Dublin also got involved through a poster contest.

Guion said a Berwick Alternative School student and Scottish Corners Elementary School won the poster contest.

"We wanted kids to respond to the theme," he said.

"His message is very important and he emphasizes that message over his work."

That message could also bring schools to the DAC to view the exhibition with an an anti-bullying theme.

"We're working with Syntero, formerly the Dublin Counseling Center, on the theme of bullying," Guion said.

"People are already looking at connections of the exhibition ... . It's great when we get to collaborate with schools.

"Part of our mission is life-long learning."

Visitors will be given the chance to record reactions with a feedback booth.

"We used it as part of the Eddie Adams exhibition and it was so successful we also wanted to include it in the Tibor exhibition," Guion said.

"We got great stories and the playback station has been popular with people watching videos.

"We wanted to duplicate it because it was so successful for Eddie Adams."

The exhibition will open with a free public reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 29 at the Arts Council, 7125 Riverside Drive.

The exhibition will be on display during regular gallery hours from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays.
