These replicas featured throughout the Canton community include well-known pieces such as: “Love Flight of a Pink Candy Heart” by Florine Stettheimer on display at The Village Arts Factory, located at 50755 Cherry Hill Road; “Violinist and Young Women” by Edgar Degas on display at the Summit on the Park Community Recreation Center, located at 46000 Summit Parkway; “A Day in June” by George Wesley Bellows on display at the Canton Public Library, located at 1200 S.

Ridge Road.
“These Canton locations are a perfect backdrop for featuring these five wonderful art reproductions,” said Elli Fassois, Canton’s Village Theater Exhibit Coordinator. “We are thrilled to participate in the DIA Inside/Out program through November to give area residents and visitors to Canton a chance to engage with and learn about these replicas and the history that each piece represents.”
