"Dissent: Political Voices" Diverse and Thought Provoking Art at Spaces

Submitted by Evelyn Kiefer on Thu, 04/28/2005 - 17:43.

Spaces latest show “Dissent: Political Voices� brings together a nearly overwhelming number of artists who address a wide range of political and social issues in their works. As expected the Bush administration and the war in Iraq are the inspiration for many of the works, but sexism, racism, homelessness, the risks of GMOs, and human rights violations are just some of the other issues addressed.

Tour of Nottingham-Spirk Innovation Center Highlight of Recent Access to the Arts Event

Submitted by Evelyn Kiefer on Mon, 04/25/2005 - 16:28.

The Access to the Arts “Arts on the Air� program Tuesday, April 19th
featuring John Nottingham and John Spirk of Nottingham and Spirk Design
Association Inc.
was a sell out. The event offered not only the usual
interview, luncheon and musical entertainment, but also a tour of
Nottingham-Spirk’s new headquarters. Nottingham-Spirk is perhaps
Cleveland’s most often told success story – a story many audience
members probably already knew well. Many seemed most interested in
getting a look inside the former First Church of Christ Scientist,
which Nottingham-Spirk are renovating and transforming into their new
“Innovation Center.�

Stanczak Op Art Exhibit a Rare Treat for Cleveland

Submitted by Evelyn Kiefer on Mon, 04/25/2005 - 16:22.


"Chroma" an exhibit of paintings and prints by Julian Stanczak is arguably the most important show currently on view in Cleveland. Stanczak is an internationally known artist and important figure of the Op Art movement of the 1960s. He also is a longtime Cleveland-area resident and emeritus professor of the Cleveland Institute of Art - he was awarded the Cleveland Arts Prize in 1969. Works from three decades of Stanczak's career can be seen by appointment at Elevation Art, 1240 Huron Road in the Playhouse Square District now through May 20th. The opening reception on Friday evening April 22nd drew a large crowd representing the "who's who" of the Northeast Ohio art scene, including many artists and art dealers.

The Cleveland Symposium, an Annual Art History Conference Showcasing Local and International Graduate Student Talent

Submitted by Evelyn Kiefer on Wed, 04/20/2005 - 16:42.

The art history students of Case Western Reserve University organized another successful Cleveland Symposium Friday April 15th.

This year nine graduate students from universities throughout the country presented 20 minute papers. Their papers covered a wide range of historical periods and geographic areas: Italian Renaissance fresco, 17th century Peruvian manuscripts, 18th century French sculpture, 19th century photography, Hudson River School landscape painting, American modernism, abstract expressionism, and contemporary art.

03.29.05 NOTES: Tuesday@REI Jurgen Faust share vision of "Future Center"

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Tue, 03/29/2005 - 16:42.

 Jurgen Faust has developed a vision for a "Future Center"
- an innovative collaborative strategy to address NEO's "Design Crisis" 

Q. What is design?

A. Design is a different way to think. At the beginning it is relatively
opposed to scientific thinking - image based thinking and method to solve
problems - thus has largely surfaced from art schools.

Web Links Cleveland's Miller-Weitzel Gallery with Berkeley Artist Jan Wurm for a Seductive Show

Submitted by Evelyn Kiefer on Mon, 03/28/2005 - 17:47.

Berkeley artist Jan Wurm was welcomed to Cleveland this past weekend by the Miller Weitzel Gallery with a one-woman show titled “Drawn In: The Seduction of Line.� Wurm initially met the owners of the Miller Weitzel Gallery Online, through a call for submissions. Her 15 mixed media drawings on canvas on view now until April 16th are raw and thought provoking commentaries on the human condition. Hung in two groups of four, and one group of five, they cover such timely -- and timeless -- subjects as war, feminism, and service and the cycle of life. Two smaller works, Samson & Delilah and the Organ Grinder and Monkey, are independent from the three groups. All are recent works on unstretched canvas, tacked to the gallery walls in a manner that conveys the intimacy and immediacy of the artist’s studio rather than the distance of a gallery.

Access to the Arts: Artisitic Value of Architecture in Akron Museum of Art Expansion

Submitted by Evelyn Kiefer on Fri, 03/25/2005 - 14:25.

With a major expansion project about to commence at the Cleveland Museum of Art, it is easy to forget about the exciting expansion project going on only 45 minutes away at the Akron Museum of Art. Access to the Arts’s “Arts on the Air� program Monday, March 14th brought much deserved attention to this project through an interview with Dr. Mitchell Kahan, Director of the Akron Museum of Art and Tom Wiscombe, Project Partner of Coop Himmelb(l)au, the architectural firm that designed the addition to The Museum. Steven Litt, the Arts and Architecture Critic of the Plain Dealer conducted the interview before a live audience of approximately 100 in the Ritz-Carlton.

Mary Black: Songs for Ireland.  She invites us in with the warmth of her voice and the liveliness of her song.  How lucky we are to have the Cleveland Museum of Art include in their Festival of Performing Arts the talents of Mary Black, a singer from Dublin.  As she comes on stage, she tells us as that she loves the snow we have here in Cleveland and that last night she took the opportunity to romp in this white world and throw some snowballs.  Now she draws us into her world of melodies and Irish rhythms, playfully sharing her stories of Ireland and blending together Celtic and American folk music.  She sings to us of the sadness of a couple parting as a soldier goes off to war; she weaves a melody around the joy of two lovers; she energizes the audience with the drum beats and riffs of her supporting drummer, guitarist, and keyboard player.

03.08.05 NOTES: REALNEO@REI on neomainstreet - the CIA never looked so good!

Submitted by Evelyn Kiefer on Wed, 03/09/2005 - 00:58.

Joe Stanley a 5th year interior design major at the Cleveland Institute of Art gave a presentation on his senior project to an enthusiastic crowd at the Peter B. Lewis building at 2 p.m. today as part of REALNEO. Joe's senior project is an ambitious vision for CIA, University and the City of Cleveland. It was exhibited at 1300 Gallery this past fall along with the work of several of his classmates. Joe's project and those of his classmates were destined to be forgotten after the exhibition (which only lasted one night), but Joe's project has been given new life through REALNEO. Joe has his own COIL at REALNEO called neomainstreet. neomainstreet contains images of Joe's models and drawings, a discussion of his design philosophy and its context within contemporary and historical trends in architecture and civic planning. Its a fascinating site of local, national and international interest!

Financial Times asks Dear Peter: is New York's loss Cleveland's gain?

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Sat, 01/22/2005 - 02:31.

The 01/21/05 Financial Times has picked a decidedly hopeful NEO spin on the recent resignation of Peter Lewis from the board of the Guggenheim Museum, asking if this development marks opportunity for Cleveland - like $77 Million worth. It seems possible only if Cleveland starts acting in concert to demonstrate the innovative, sophisicated thinking Peter clearly expects around him. So far, we haven't impressed him, and it is clearly time to change our approaches and collaborate to show Peter NEO is worthy of his further support - plenty of other regions will try to do so and Peter is far from locked behind any of our gates - so let's think open, openly.

CMA is world-class proving "At Museums, Computers Get Creative"

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Thu, 12/02/2004 - 10:44.

Cleveland Museum of Art CIO Len Steinbach recently presented
to the Community of Minds network on his work to leverage state of the art
information technology for extended learning and virtual community development
and in-house experiential enhancements, ranging from multi-player student games
and videoconferencing for conservation to touch screen displays in the
galleries to help teachers explain advanced concepts to students while visiting
the museum. If this doesn’t sound like our founding fathers’ CMA, it isn’t.. it
is better. Leveraging IT is essential for all great museums to
best fulfill their missions in the modern world, and the CMA’s future value and
reputation in this region and in the global community will increasingly be
evaluated for virtual effectiveness. Read more about the high tech side of
museum operations from the NYTimes, excerpted and linked below, take
satisfaction Cleveland is in the same league as the world’s best – be
supportive of CMA’s efforts to further these world-class objectives as they
expand and evolve.
