This Tuesday, the day before Halloween, The John and Mildred Putnam Sculpture Collection and The Friends of Art have a treat for all of NEO. The day begins with a tour from 12 noon - 1 pm of some of the highlights of the John and Mildred Putnam Sculpture Collection. The John and Mildred Putnam Collection is a remarkable collection of over 35 sculptures by "regional" artists located indoors and outdoors around the campus of Case Western Reserve University and in University Circle. The tour begins at the sculpture MERGING, infront of Guilford house, Belflower Rd., behind The Cleveland Institute of Art's Gund Building on North Campus. Tour is weather permitting and will be cancelled if there is substantial rains during 12 pm - 1pm. Please wear comfortable walking shoe and warm clothing if necessary!

The fun continues with a dedication and reception in celebration of the newest sculpture acquired by the John and Mildred Putnam Collection, INNER CIRCLE by David Deming. The reception begins at 4:30 pm at the Village at 115, House 4, "The Great Room" 1665 E. 115th Street. Parking is available at Alumni House on Juniper Dr. next to Arabica. Professor Harvey Buchanan, Director of the John and Mildred Putnam Sculpture Collection, will say a few works, and David Deming, sculptor and President of the Cleveland Institute of Art, will say a few words outdoors near his work, across the street at the intersection of Belflower, Juniper and 115th Street. Refreshments will be provided.

I love this sculpture

But am sick to find out that the best our creative minds have to offer looks like a parking garage.  A parking garage that will not function for art students; that will not function on any level--whereas, the existing Gund building was meant to fuction on many levels--Bauhaus.
