Columbus brothers open art studio after father's Alzheimer's diagnosis
Jerry was traveling the world, creating prosthesis for people in war-torn regions.
John was taking care of their father, who was suffering from Alzheimer's disease.
The Fitzpatrick brothers both needed an escape: sculpting.
Jerry returned to Central Ohio just before their father's death.
Together, they opened a studio in Franklinton, Red Head X 2, to create their pieces.
"When [Jerry] works with metal it speaks to him," John said. "When I work with metal, it argues with me."
Their studio will be part of the Open Studio and Stage event on October 7 and 8.
"When people come in here, I want them to say 'Wow, that's cool!" Jerry said.
