Friends of Northeast Ohio, a day for a new bridge to our future is arriving Thursday, November 17th, when the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) will present their plan to supplement the current I-90 Innerbelt bridge over the Cuyahoga River by building a second bridge immediately to the north of the current span. If you care about the form, flow and future of our community, you must care about this near $ billion project. The Cuyahoga County Planning Commission, area newspapers and universities, and broad community leaders all agree this project offers a great opportunity to reshape Cleveland forever. There is broad agreement we should replace the current I-90 bridge with a world-class span. In doing so, we may relocate the bridge south to allow further development around our $500 million gateway district, and create an astounding gateway entrance to our city. To help further such enlightened outcomes, has provided a social networking site to this community, found at - thanks to Cleveland Institute of Art Future Center Director David Moss for site design support. Please join your community at NEO Bridge to interact on this issue. And, most important, please join your community at the Wolstein Center this Thursday, November 17th, at 4:30 pm for a public forum with ODOT...

I just got a notice from the good folks at Assemble - - all should definitely check out the Tremont ArtWalk, and the Edge show at Cleveland State will be excellent as well.

For the ArtWalk, Asterisk and Doubting Thomas have great shows scheduled... also, the artist showing at Pilgrim Church is cool, and it is worth seeing the place... I went there with a friend and his kids, a few months ago, and the caretaker took us into the belltower and let the kids ring the bell... Quasimdodo style... real trip

Designer's Felt Creations Are Hot!

Submitted by Evelyn Kiefer on Tue, 11/08/2005 - 14:28.



It is rare to find anything new and innovative in fashion these days. It seems like every season is just another revival of the 60s, 70s, 80s, or some other past decade. The same things are re-presented without ever being reinvented. Horst, a nationally known local fashion designer is an exception to this trend.

Arts and the Cleveland Mayor's Race

Submitted by Kevin Cronin on Mon, 10/31/2005 - 09:19.

Both Mayor Campbell and Council President Jackson met with the arts community last week.  Attendance was low, both at the Play House on the east with Campbell and Cleveland Public Theatre on the westside with Jackson. The Campbell strategy was to identify a top 20 list of reasons Campbell has advanced the arts, with art summits, expansion of live/work zones and public funding through the "1% for arts" set aside that is a part of public construction contracts.  She says her track record merits her return to office for another four years.  Jackson said, through his leadership, he deserves credit for these initiatives as well, and his record in council deserves the public’s faith and confidence that he will work to represent them well.  But what would be an election without an added dose of cynicism?
