WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Local living space Urban West to host art exhibit Wednesday featuring the work of Easton Shryne, a 22-year-old Wausau man who tragically died in 2011.
Shryne died after being struck by a vehicle in while riding his bicycle in Wausau. His family wants to share his artwork with the world in order to keep his memory alive.
The exhibit is part of the program by Urban West, owned and operated by SC Swiderski and committed to feature local artists' work in their building.
"It was very meaningful to have the family reach out. We brought the mother out and she was able to walk through the space and tell us her vision," said Jacqui McElroy, business development manager of SC Swiderski.
Shryne's mother selected 27 pieces for display that will also be available for purchase. She told News 9 she plans to bring along additional original works for purchase as well.
The exhibit on Wednesday is free and will run from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
