Tremont Artwalk shows why Cleveland is the city of choice for so many people and reasons

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Sat, 05/12/2007 - 20:20.

There are a half dozen really important art galleries in Tremont, three of which I was able to visit this Tremont Artwalk, May 11... "*" (asterisk), Doubting Thomas and Hybrid. Each opened excellent exhibits, bustling with regular and visiting artwalkers, contributing to a world-class show... the overall spectacle that is Tremont on a beautiful Friday Artwalk night. I saw that certainty this artwalk in the clear eyes of a two year old child, a phenomenon architect, and a socialist planner, two of whom were in town for a symposium on Shrinking Cities.

I ran into the German phenomenon and nomad planner as they were walking down Professor in front of Asterisk Gallery and we recognized each other from the symposium where they spoke, earlier that afternoon at Convivium33. As if their exuberant smiles weren't telling enough, they confirmed they were having a very good time in Cleveland that evening. Further down the street I saw another of the symposium speakers - conceptual artist Mel Chin - and was pleased they were all seeing Cleveland in such a good light.

Shrinking Cities was not reflected in the Tremont Artwalk this Friday, as these city streets, galleries and restaurants were all packed. This is a right time of year meet-up when the region's arts community really gravitates to Tremont, as there are so many galleries and artists deserving focused, regular support in this historic and delightful neighborhood.

 

The Artwalkers in town for the Shrinking Cities symposium who I saw relishing in this ultimate urban and Tremont experiences included world-renownred conceptual architects Kyong Park, Founder/Director of the International Center for Urban Ecology in New York, and Wolfgang Grillitsch, PEANUTZ ARCHITEKTEN (Berlin, Germany) and conceptual artist Mel Chin, who is world-renowned for his work in environmental art and with bioreclamation - all are planners interested in urban reality. So much of what they study and deal with is negative, it is good to show them an example of positive urban reality here in NEO.

The art I saw that evening would all certainly have added to their pleasure. We were most interested to see the paintings of Pamela Dodds, who is a friend and artist we like very much. She is showing her large, powerful paintings (above) at Asterisk Gallery, with another impactful painter, Ann Bralliar, and the very temporal pin sculptures of Carol Hummel (below) - tall phalluses of straight pins that are not held together in any permanent way (one had fallen over the course of the opening)... really fascinating and strong show. See a pan of the opening linked here and attached below.

Then we went over to the ever-over-stimulating Doubting Thomas (856 Jefferson), where the walls are really covered with expressive, bright exciting art of all sorts by many artists - the front wall is covered to the ceiling with a massive fantastic painting... actually many. All three gallery spaces here are as powerul in energy... if you can catch them when they are open you should check this show out.

We also popped into Hybrid, which I always find interesting - the place has a clubby feel and the artists seem to cross over to aerosol but here are exploring their commercial potential - an exciting space and always interesting scene... tonight, someone playing guitar and singing inside and kids chalking outside.

The Tremont Artwalk experience is easy and fits all ages. With two year old in tow, we found an easy place to park a block from the main gallery area - right by the old Gospel Press, and had a nice stroll up one of those gritty yet charming streets that makes Tremont interesting. Soon we were surrounded by hip restaurants.

That's today's Tremont - urban decay and rotting history receding to redevelopment and all that comes with it - Gospel Press is soon going condo too - upscaling and suburbanization and urban redevelopment and blight elimination and neighborhood redevelopment are all maturing here at one time and moving to a level of high density that offers unique opportunities not possible anywhere else - gentrification?

Unfortunately, it is largely happening through suburbanization - large plots of land redeveloped with detached homes and townhouses in small developments planned for views, without consideration of the needs of a walkable, livable neighborhood, and so still largely car-based.

But where the urban fabric of Tremont is intact, there are a wide variety of excellent restaurants and cafes, mixed with shops and galleries and bars and an ice cream shop, churches and mostly smallish, well kept old homes, apartments and commercial buildings - with a lovely, resource -rich central park - really nice part of town. The people in the neighborhood are vocal in making sure their interests are well represented... e.g., there are many yard signs all over Tremont (and in my Ohio City) demanding Mittal Steel clean up - these people care about their neighborhood, in rapid transition.

One of the most interesting galleries I saw this artwalk had only been in Tremont for a few hours... in the traditon of taking back the streets, and in a statement about the bursting of the art bubble in Cleveland, CIA graduate artist Patsy Kline installed her work of installation and performance art at the corner of Jefferson and Tremont Avenue - I like the many statements being made here, and the execution (see top of article) - website here.

Really nice Artwalk.

MORE MOBILE ART GALLERIES ON THE STREET

Great review Norm, sorry I missed the walk.  I don't know if Gallery U Haul rents that truck each time it goes out (expensive?) but looking at the ramp up into the rear of the windowless truck I have a suggestion.  Horse Trailer.   Horse trailers have floors which are very close (one step) to the ground and they also have side doors and windows.  Art could be attached to both the close-to-the-ground outside walls of the trailer and also installed on the inside of the trailer.  A used 16' long horse trailer can be bought for under $2,000.00.  A nice new one looks like this
I may be buying one to make an equipment move for a friend - if I do I would be willing to share it as the Horse Gallery!  Just an idea... 

I think this should give Tremonters things to think about

I was looking back on REALNEO at what was posted here in the past about Gallery U-Haul, and I came across this nice posting that offers some outside perspectives on Tremont, from 2 years ago... before I knew any of you REALNEO Tremonters... the problems were already showing then...thought I'd highlight it today, for a while, in case any of you new to REALNEO had missed it.

Artists sure know how to roll up their sleeves...

 Artists sure know how to roll up their sleeves and get a job done - thats for sure!

I think what is noteworthy is that all of this came about through sheer hard work and effort of the artists that lived and worked in Tremont. We didn't need grants or permission. In fact, I think it could be argued that the corporate/foundation support for the art scene in Tremont has led to its sterility - issue the September Art in the Park thing that is an exact replica of any other summer art/craft circuit thing with few, if any Tremont artists. But, the art walk is one of the true things yet to be transformed (though arguably the postcards increasingly lack merit). Its interesting that of all the artists in Frank's auction, only a few are left in Tremont. But its nice to see our hard work appreciated*

Too bad TWDC doesn't respect the effort. They have granted $25,000 free and clear to the gallery next to the upcoming Dante's. I don't think that gallery shows many local artists.

 

*"You just move in the artists and the gays and they fix things up and then everyone else wants to move there" - Joe Stanley in his PDD607 presentation on improving a neighborhood

Tremont is ruined now - Artists, please move to the Star!

All that is left of the arts of Tremont I love is *, Doubting Thomas, and the few remaining artists living around there... and I avoid the Art Walks because all the people walking around are lame.

In general, Tremont is uninteresting, now... a toxic, ugly neighborhood... the only draw there for me was the real arts there, and that is now largely lost. TWDC and the developers working in the area ruined the culture there.

So where is the next arts district - where artists can afford to move and live and can claim enough territoty to not care what develops around them - I can think the perfect neighborhood - the artists all need to get together and take over my part of town, and keep control.

That fits perfectly with the whole Star Neighborhood Development plan for redeveloping the East Side of University Circle... which I envision being an arts and crafts neighborhood, well integrated with students, faculty and graduates of CIA.

Your problem is you are on the West Side and the suburban whites feel safe taking over, developing and living there.

Typical NEO whites won't live in my neighborhood, but I know you don't have a problem integrating with blacks, if you are an artist.

So all of you move around where I live, where houses and land are free, and there are plenty of unused but excellent commercial buildings to convert into studios and galleries, and we can keep out the undesirables from the suburbs forever.

Who is ready to roll up your sleeves and build a new, open local food, art and technology co-op colony, starting three blocks from the Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland Institute of Art, and Case... on the Red Line and Euclid Corridor, now completely blighted by the entire establishment planning community, but now planned by an ingenius, innovative, open cooperative process to become an urban eden?

clarification...

 That $25k TWDC gave the art gallery, my partner in reviewing the stacks of documents remembers it being a loan. I remember it being a grant. At any rate - we will certainly let you know when we have the hard copies in front of us again (soon). There was a second $25k given to the owner of the bank building (soon to be Dante's) who is also the owner of the gallery. I thought it unusual that TWDC would give one person all the assistance, particularly when that person is extremely wealthy (or at least certainly appears to be from their own website). "Just my thoughts!"

I'm sure there's a good reason for it that has everything to do with the welfare and benefit of the neighborhood as a whole!

Planners

  Oh Norm...the "planners" have their eye on your neighborhood,too.

I am now ashamed to say that I went to school for landscape architecture, which is one of those professions that is on the continuum ad nauseum to redesign society and nature. 

And, perhaps, the worst in that continuum of societal engineers would be the urban planners...

 

No Official Plans for Star Neighborhood, except for REAL COOP's

No games or sweet talk on my side, or my side of town - after five years of watching, and analyzing, I've concluded and made clear I have ZERO confidence in Chris Ronayne, UCI and Cleveland Foundation leadership, and their plans for the SIIs, Opportunity Corridor, University Circle and all their sprawling delusions beyond... including into my neighborhood. If you folks want to kiss their collective asses, they are fat so pucker up big. I do not kiss their asses.

David Reed and I met with Chris Ronayne and some of his staff years ago to review our plans for the Star Neighborhood - and we met with Ronn Richards and lots of his staff, as well. All of them have behaved poorly since, and they have lost all my respect.

We must dispose of all the "plans" created during the rule of these people and start from scratch - and the citizens must develop the plans for their neighborhoods.

That is what I have done for my neighborhood. And my plan will work. I am fortunate, because there are NO CDCs in MY NEIGHBORHOOD. I once proposed UCI should act as a CDC for my neighborhood, but that was before I saw how poorly UCI behaves - now I am in complete opposition to any involvement by them in plans here, and believe the community should view them as a threat to our quality of life.

Before I met with County Commissioner Jones and others at the County level, to propose the Star Neighborhood Development plan for my neighborhood, I met with Cleveland Planning Director Bob Brown, City Plan Manager Fred Collier, and Ward 9 Councilman Conwell to determine if there is anything "planned" for where I am planning - I was very clear to all, I do not want to compete with other "plans" so want to work where NOBODY has plans to work... where no other investments are happening. Sudhir Raghupathy accompanied me, as I wanted a witness.

I believe Mayor Brewer is a smart man who will support good things happening in his community. We all bring good things... I have always found him supportive of me and the plans I have presented to him - he has a copy of the entire Star Neighborhood Development plan I presented to Commissioner Jones... I'm sure Brewer is also supportive of the other Star stakeholders, like the Williams. This is not a carpetbagger game, here - this is real local grass roots redevelopment and outsiders are not welcome... we'll protect what's ours.

If Brewer has something up his sleeves, and is planning to sell EC out to The Man, elections are around the corner... and that goes for council members, as well... it will not be hard to topple anyone in power in East Cleveland... very small town, with no heroes here, and no happy citizens ready to rally around failed leadership - much more realistic people and place than "Cleveland" and the other 'burbs.

There are no official or unofficial plans I know of for anywhere I am planning, except for some very disturbing, sketchy vapor plans for waste of concrete housing project called "University Circle East", or such crap, which supposedly involves slum-commercial developer Rubin and Environmental Health Watch... sort of like White Hat partnering with Hawkin School... we'll certainly be watching that one closely - so far, it is just in the blight stage, with a combination of redlining, demolition by neglect and other discriminatory practices causing current residents great harm, for which Environmental Health Watch should be eternally ashamed.

And it seems there are plans for a coal powerplant coming out of the fools running University Circle. I am watching them like the stink on their shit.

Compared to the rest of the region, this is as good as a community gets... we'll keep the haters out.

Planners ARE the worst of the lot-

 I agree! At least here in Cleveland... I was just talking with my husband, son, and his partner... we're thinking Vancouver. I need to finish my degree and my son's partner needs to watch over his elderly parents but - maybe we'll soon be by my daughter?

I love East Cleveland, Norm, and my husband and I were looking at property there. there just isn't any financing. One would think a constructive use of the federal funds coming into Cleveland would be to provide mortgages for the areas that need new blood, but no. Apparently the developers are more in need.

Funds are available

  If you work at Case or a University Circle institution...a model that could work anywhere in the city.

yes - IF you work there.

 And its my understanding those funds are put forward by those entities. Its a great idea and a great plan.

I still don't understand why the city is dumping all their money into the developers' bank accounts. Those houses on East105th are all rehabbed and sitting there, lined up in a row, with a $350k price tag on them.... for the past 18 months. Is something going to happen differently with all OUR federal funds that are going to be dumped into more development?

Why not provide mortgages for the people that want to move into the neighborhoods that need the love. People who desperately want to get away from the entitled know it alls? People who can live side by side with disparate others because they have respect for others. In fact, I will say they don't see much difference between others and themselves and in looking for a difference find ways to make themselves better, not vice versa.

just a thought.

There's a young girl in my office. She and her husband and son are trying to buy in east Cleveland, but they can't get a mortgage - no mortgage money is available. Why shouldn't our funds go to help young families like hers?

And the houses on 105th used Amish Labor

I was rehab'ing our house in East Cleveland the same time the Amish were renovating the houses on 105 - they'd come in each day in a van and set up their tools and work away until evening, and pack up and leave. I doubnt they bought a pop in town the whole time they were here.

So, not only was that a poorly planned project, that has failed, but it didn;t pump local money into the local economy - it funded some Amish out in whereverville, bumfukurbia.

Planners and CDCers here need to be fired... the whole CDC system needs to be SHUT DOWN!

Come on over to EC - we'll go over to city hall and find our who has the current city landbank list, and find who is in charge of our $2.5 million in NSP funds, and get you situated in a historic landmark house on a great street a few blocks from all the haters in University Circle - I need your help keeping them out of my part of town... as Laura says, those morons have "visions" for our territoty and their visions suck!

One of their visions looks very much like a coal fired power plant - I can't wait to dig into that one... Chris!

Disrupt IT

Give houses away

  Why shouldn't our funds go to help young families like hers?

Whatever happened to Cuyahoga County's downpayment assistance program?  One never hears about that program any more...instead, how about offering a little self reliance by giving the homes away?

Tremont Artwalk

I liked the Article and was sorry my wife and I couldn't make this years Artwalk. Most of the article was positive except for your remarks about the "suburbinization of the Tremont area. The people that risked and started businesses and bought and remodled or tore down and built new homes will, and have every right to make Tremont into whatever they want it to be. They revitalized a dying neighborhood and turned it into a new neighborhood. With that came new ideas about what a neighborhood should be and you can't criticise that. Tremont is a jewel in a city barely hanging on, the people that had lived here left, they bailed and new and different people moved in and saved a great neighborhood. The steel mill's closed, the people that formerly occupied Tremont largely worked at those mill's which have closed, because they could walk to work and the neighborhood was filled with people just like them. Now it is being rebuilt and thank God. I hope it continues to grow and flourish instead of die and be abandoned when the housing is used up and destroyed like way too many Cleveland neighborhood's.

that IS one way of seeing it, "Dude"

 However, many people see things in Tremont quite differently, and embrace a different way of doing things. Check out the story reprinted form the October 09 Plain Press. I've been meaning to post it, thanks for the reminder:


Gordon Square Arts District becomes a reality: 
Detroit Shoreway takes a huge step toward economic diversity

by Joe Narkin

(Plain Press, October 2009) As recently as 40 years ago, urban planning consisted of sequestering low-income people in public housing projects where the social ills of urban poverty tended to grow exponentially and hopelessly. At the same time, as in the South Street Development in Philadelphia in the 1960’s, ghettos with appealing architecture were taken wholesale by eminent domain. Today, wealthy urban hipsters who pay armed off-duty cops to patrol the perimeters of the neighborhood dominate the South Street area.

Lately, however, economic diversity has been considered the gold standard of success for development projects designed to restore vitality to cities in decline. But has this more inclusive intent within urban development produced much better results or is it still just an unrealized theory?

NEWS ANALYSIS

It appears clear that, in most cases, attempts at economic diversity in urban redevelopment have largely failed, producing questionable outcomes and caustic controversy. In most cases, inclusion yields to de facto gentrification as urban pioneers from the suburbs learn that urban living can be downright gritty, rather than idyllic. This has been evident on the West Side of Cleveland in the Tremont and Ohio City neighborhoods where constant conflict between the poor and the gentry reigns.

For many years, Detroit Shoreway, historically a blue-collar, industrial neighborhood, has been at the forefront of combining affordable housing with business development and market rate housing. With the completion of the Streetscape Project on Detroit Avenue between West 58th to West 73rd Streets and the ongoing creation of the Gordon Square Arts District, the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood has positioned itself very well to succeed in achieving and sustaining true economic diversity.

The success to date of the Gordon Square Arts District can be largely attributable to a long-standing social justice commitment on the part of Ward 17 Councilman Matt Zone and the three primary partners in the endeavor (the Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization, Cleveland Public Theatre, and the Near West Theatre), according to Jan Roller, Executive Director for the project.

“We needed that glue – that commitment to social justice – to get us beyond the bumps in the road,” said Roller. “These three partners always focused on the bigger goal of improving the quality of life of the residents of Detroit Shoreway and of Cleveland,” she said.

“The Gordon Square Arts District is a national model for how the arts can be used in economic development, how the public and private sector can come together” to restore an economically and culturally diverse neighborhood, said Roller.

And local residents seem to greatly appreciate the effort. “The rehab of Detroit Avenue is more like Crocker Park and will attract more people,” said Antonio “Tony” Ruggiero, 79, a retired tool and die worker who has lived on West 69th Street with his wife Rose for 55-years. “This was a wonderful neighborhood 50-years ago” and the Gordon Square Arts District will help people want to move back here,” said Tony.

Tony recognizes Father Vincent Caruso, former pastor of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, as an affordable housing pioneer in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood, who, in 1979, helped develop Villa Mercede, an apartment complex for senior citizens and disabled individuals and, in 1980, helped incorporate Nolasco Housing Corporation, an affordable housing developer. “He was a priest, but he was a man of good mind,” said Tony, his accent reflecting his upbringing in the rural town of Coreno, Italy, 80-miles south of Rome.

“I love what they did with this,” said Henry DeLeva, 39, who was born and raised on West 69th Street. Henry was born and raised in an Italian and Irish household of nine children, which led to 32 grandchildren, and the extended family has remained in the neighborhood and owns 13 properties, most for occupancy by their large family with some units for rent. “More families are coming back to the neighborhood now that they see it as safer,” said Henry.

Henry, who at the age of 19 began with neighborhood friends the tradition of painting the colors of the Italian flag on telephone poles and fire hydrants, believes that Detroit Avenue has historically been the source of most public safety concerns in the area and that the streetscape, theaters, and new businesses have resulted in a significantly improved safety and quality of life throughout the neighborhood.

“Even residents in the neighborhood never wanted to be up there (Detroit Avenue), but it is definitely moving in the direction of good,” said Henry.

“Gordon Square will be like no other place in the U.S, said Councilman Zone at the ribbon cutting for the streetscape project on September 26, 2009. “We don’t want to be like N.Y. or Chicago; we want to be like Gordon Square, like Detroit Shoreway, like Cleveland,” said Zone.

“From 2004 to 2006, Detroit Shoreway led the city of Cleveland in market rate housing, but we also led the entire West Side of Cleveland in affordable housing,” said the councilman.

According to figures provided by Councilman Zone, the Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization (DSCDO) has generated over $30 million for affordable housing development in the neighborhood. DSCDO has renovated 212 affordable housing rental units and, in partnership with the Cleveland Housing Network, has rehabbed 150 lease-purchase houses for ownership by low-income families.

“And probably the most important statement about our commitment to preventing gentrification is the Gordon Square Arts District’s committing $1 million of its capital campaign to the Neighborhood Responsibility Fund,” wrote Zone in an email correspondence. “This fund will assist the development of affordable housing and support services for low-income families,” he wrote.

The newly opened West Side Housing Center is also an example of the commitment of DSCDO. “The West Side Housing Center shows that they want to keep low-income people here,” said West Side Housing Center Director Amy Weahry, noting that the Center is located in a prime location in a Gordon Square Building storefront that could easily have been leased for a restaurant or other business. [See the August 2009 edition of the Plain Press for coverage of the West Side Housing Center].

Zone is particularly proud that the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood has welcomed the 52 unit Emerald Commons, at West 79th and Madison, the first newly constructed, supportive housing complex for formerly homeless individuals in the City of Cleveland. The Tremont and Central neighborhoods had rejected this project, wrote Zone. DSCDO is also assisting in the rehabilitation of Cogswell Hall on Franklin Avenue, a permanent supportive housing program for women, he said.

The social justice missions of the non-profit Near West Theatre (NWT) and Cleveland Public Theatre (CPT) will also play a large role in assuring economic diversity, said Raymond Bobgan, Executive Artistic Director for CPT and a 13-year resident of the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood.

“Artists are often the first to move into a struggling neighborhood because it is inexpensive to live in, and they are often first in line to be kicked out” of a gentrified neighborhood because of occupancy costs, said Bobgan. “But this whole project is based upon the artistic community” and the success of the neighborhood is dependent upon retaining artists in the active life of the community, he said.

“The Gordon Square Arts District is essentially a theatre district now, but, in the future, there will be more focus on the visual arts,” said Bobgan, who finds Cleveland an ideal place for an artist. “My friends who have moved to places like New York spend most of their time making their living, rather than making their art,” he said. But, even now, significant attention has been paid to art throughout the streetscape under the artwork and guidance of environmental artist and streetscape designer Susan Frazier Mueller.

One of the efforts on the part of the Gordon Square Arts District to attract and retain visual artists is the creation of affordable art studio space within the long-vacant Lou’s Furniture Building which is undergoing restoration by DSCDO, said Zone.

“We are eager to move into Detroit Shoreway,” said Stephanie Morrison-Hrbek, Executive Director of NWT. “During the planning process for the Gordon Square Arts District, I attended many Ward 17 gatherings and have always been impressed by the true diversity, the welcoming spirit, and the common vision shared by blue collar residents sitting next to upscale homeowners,” said Morrison-Hrbek. “In Ohio City, I have witnessed a lot of strife between the classes,” she said, comparing the conflict in Ohio City to a civil war.

“We can make a dream a reality; we can take this dream of inclusion and expand upon it; we can take our social justice work and let it blossom” as part of the Gordon Square Arts District, said Morrison-Hrbek.

“The three partners in the Gordon Square Art District have provided the moral fabric, the underlying commitment to social justice, and are making it work,” said Roller.

Early Tremont Troll - thedude216

I'm analyzing past troll activiy on realNEO related to Tremont - this seems an early who should have been outed - The Dude was one of our first real Tremonter haters, and look what he supports.

Dude - you really fucked up your neighborhood, for all your troll friends and the good people who really have worked their lives to make it great.

Think about this as we consider how to deal with trolls in the future, as this uncool dude caused great harm to this region.

Disrupt IT

Imagine if we had always killed hater trolls on contact

Because realNEO "leadership" (whoever that is) has been unwilling to get it's shit together and deal with policies like how to kill trolls - and board chair (I guess that is what you call him) Jeff Buster has had a completely hands-off approach to managing this environment -  we started being attacked by waves of Trolls, starting in the ramp up to the Obama vs. old fart and stupid bitch election, that breed further troll hatred into Tremont discussions... the stupidiest thing I ever let happen in my life was letting trolls live in realNEO... but that was supposed to be addressed by other realNEO leaders....

As our leaders have refused to address such issues, I am.

Far worse than spammers - criminals in my mind - trolls are conmen and I'm still planning to hunt down any of these haters in our archives that I may as they caused realNEO, the citizens of the region and my family immeasurable harm.

Anyone needs an education about trolls, email me.

Anyone approves of trolls, stay far away from me.

I see a troll here, I will out it and kill it.

If you were one of our trolls, figure out how to disappear forever... and never think of returning, even to read our content.

I hate you.

I just noticed this old write-up on a Tremont Artwalk from May, 2007 - three years ago, and I revisited (around 4,000 views)... seems a good overview - who agrees or disagrees... and how has this played out in the neighborhood three years later... has gentrification worked - good - bad - how to make things better now, BESIDES CLEANING UP MITTAL FOR REAL?

How did the Tremont leadership do in advancing Tremont in the last three years... it seems to have been a very rough ride, looking at this from the realNEO perspective seen by the rest of the world.

Frank had the roughest ride I know of, but others may have suffered even more...?!?!
