Her necklace, 1009 Roses, was created in remembrance of her younger brother, who passed away in an accident. The overwhelming number of floral arrangements at his funeral gave her the idea to create an abundance of tiny roses. They number 1009, one for each day separating the birth of the two siblings. 1009 Roses, along with another artwork by Simms, is on view in Heavy Metal at the Akron Art Museum through February 18, 2018.

All in the Timing: The One-Act Play Festival
Firestone Theatre – ALL IN THE TIMING by David Ives Thursday, January 18, 2018, 7:00 p.m. Friday, January 19, 2018, 7:00 p.m. Saturday, January 19, 2018, 7:00 p.m. The world according to David Ives is a very odd place, and his plays constitute a virtual stress test of the English language -- and of the audience's capacity for disorientation and delight. Ives's characters plunge into black holes called "Philadelphias," where the simplest desires are hilariously thwarted. Chimps named Milton, Swift, and Kafka are locked in a room and made to re-create Hamlet. And a con man peddles courses in a dubious language in which "hello" translates as "velcro" and "fraud" comes out as "freud." At once enchanting and perplexing, incisively intelligent and side-splittingly funny, this original evening of theatre includes plays titled "Sure Thing," "Words, Words, Words," "The Universal Language," "Variations on the Death of Trotsky," "The Philadelphia," and "Philip Glass Buys a Loaf of Bread."
