We are still buzzing about the LARGEST 3D Stereo Painting ever! Even better that the theme of the painting is around the LARGEST High School Alumni Softball Tournament!

In 2023, we dedicated the first of five 3D stereo paintings to the City of Grove City. “Game Time” celebrates 40 years of GCHS Alumni Softball Tournaments. The idea is to feature Grove City’s past in the left-hand of the painting, and its present on the right. With the use of a specialized viewer, the observer will see a combined 3D image. Past and present come together to form a three-dimensional experience from two dimensional pieces.

Meet the artists at the visitor center on Friday, July 26 from 5-7 during the Homecoming Celebration on Broadway.

Artists – David Lane & Cody Wood

David Lane is a graduate of Columbus College of Art and Design and the Ohio State University. “Mr. Lane” may look familiar from his thirty years teaching art for South-Western City Schools. After retiring from Park Street Intermediate, David has focused on making art. At the 2022 Ohio State Fair, he garnered The Hayley Award as well as People’s Choice. His award-winning piece “17,502” was later acquired by The Ohio History Connection and is now part of its Pandemic collection. His 2022 Arts in the Alley entry, “001.209 to 998,” a 3D-printed detection of the Grove City Public Library won him his third Easel Award and another People’s Choice. You can currently view his Fine Art paintings at Hayley Gallery in New Albany, Ohio.

For over twenty years, David’s work has experimented with stereo-imagery. This collaboration with Visit Grove City and colleague Cody Wood, has expanded the possibilities of his stereo concepts. He is thrilled to finally share his vision with Grove City on such a grand scale.

Cody Wood studied Fine Arts at Cornell University, animation at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, and received his B.F.A from Columbus College of Art and Design. Cody has been a career artist spanning multiple decades and disciplines. As a designer, he has done concept work for small local businesses as well as known-names like Ben & Jerry’s. As an animator, he has done commercials for companies like Goodyear, Ford, and The Ohio Lottery, as well as TV feature work for Cartoon Network. Recently, he has been illustrator for series of children’s books. The large-scale stereo paintings for Visit Grove City are his biggest adventure to date!
