Exhibit: The Sam Sheppard Case at BAY Arts

This is your last week to see A Strange Holiday: An Aesthetic Examination of the Sam Sheppard Case at BAY Arts, in Bay Village, Ohio.
In the early morning hours of July 4, 1954, Marilyn Sheppard was brutally murdered in her Bay Village home.  Twenty six days later, her husband, Dr. Sam Sheppard was arrested on the porch of his parents house and charged with her murder.  The house where Sam Sheppard was arrested is now part of the BAYarts campus, known as the Fuller House.  It is also home to the Sullivan Gallery which will host this exhibition.  Sam Sheppard denied any involvement in his wife's murder, describing his own struggle with a bushy-haired assailant.  The sensationalized trial became international news, with ramifications that still reverberate in the media, pop culture and the U.S. Supreme Court.
Update: More.
