Art of the Day: Tie-dye

Submitted by Evelyn Kiefer on Mon, 09/04/2006 - 00:44.

So you think you would not last a day on Project Run Way? Maybe you never learned to sew or maybe you are the creative type but fashion is just not your media? This past Friday I realized anyone can make "wearable art." Tie-dying is easy, no sketching, cutting or sewing, most of the process is left up to chance. Park Works (a great oganization that brings fun events to Cleveland parks) held a tie-dye event at Fairview Park near where I live in Ohio City. Park Works made it easy; they provided free white t-shirts, coolers of cold water for soaking the shirts, rubber bands and rubber gloves and bottles of dyes in every color you could want.

Case Starts Energy Ambassador/Adopt a Building Program

Submitted by Evelyn Kiefer on Wed, 08/30/2006 - 23:31.

I am very excited! I recently volunteered to become an Energy Ambassador at Case Western Reserve Univeristy, part of the Adopt a Building program. I will be adopting Mather House, the building where I work. Mather House is a  century old Gothic Revival former girls dorm  turned office building -- probably not the most energy efficient on campus. I suspect the most  significant improvements at Mather House will be directly related to changing the residents' behavior. I think I could be a good energy ambassador; I am always turning out lights, I go to great pains to recycle, I hate air conditioning and I walk rather than using the campus shuttle bus. But I am looking for suggestions as to how myself and the other residents of Mather House could really make a difference. Please post your ideas. I would also appreciate links to good energy conservation sites. The Adopt a Building program is just getting started. My first "Ambassador's" meeting will be next Wednesday. I will fill you in with more details late next week.

Aerosol artists, DJs, MCs and BBoys show the arts of our core, on the streets

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Sun, 08/27/2006 - 01:00.

As a largely grey and blue crowd of arts and peace lovers assembled in Lakewood to think and talk about renowned contemporary artists John Jackson and Masumi Hayashi, now living only in spirit and retrospect, a young and multi-colorful crowd gathered in the "Market Square" pocket park at W.25th and Lorain (across from the West Side Market) to give props to scores of nameless contemporary artists that live on in the streets of Cleveland's urban core, through their art of aerosol paint, rap, scratch and break... otherwise known to the establishment as counter-culture, noise and pollution.

If you have not been to Spaces Gallery to see it yet, your last chance is this Friday August 4th. Nine works that represent the implied theme of the failure of the American Dream in the 21st-century by artists from Ohio, New York and Colorado. This exhibition received a bad review from Dan Tranberg, but see what you think.

Art of the Day: light assemblages by Dana Depew

Submitted by Evelyn Kiefer on Fri, 07/28/2006 - 03:30.


 

Seen in Asterisk Gallery during the Taste of Tremont -- these assemblages made of multiple light fixtures, chairs legs and other recycled things are the most interesting sculptures I have seen in a long time. This is a big year for Dana Depew, besides running a great gallery on Professor (for some years now), he has been very prolific with his own art lately. He is also one of the five artists in "New American Art", what may be Doubting Thomas Gallery's best show yet. Doubting Thomas is about a block away from Asterisk on Jefferson.

Art of the Day: Millennium Park, Chicago

Submitted by Evelyn Kiefer on Thu, 07/27/2006 - 01:03.

 

Better late than never! Millennium Park opened in 2004, long after the 2000 festivities. Not a problem, this green space/public art extravaganza has lasting appeal.

Taste of Tremont: Tremont is Delicious!

Live music, Morrison dancers, hula hooping roller skaters, art, dogs, ice cream, ethnic and gourmet food -- The Taste of Tremont had it all.

Visit LeftLuggage and view the dances there under "Videodances.tv". Click on the link for "Moment".

The movement is reminiscent of works I loved coaching when I directed The Repertory Project. The two bodies slip and slide through space carving it out and carving out and defining a relationship as they go. Is it obvious? No, but then neither is life.

 With the Ingenuity Fest coming up, I thought we could warm up with this easy to understand video dance by Mimi Garrard. We'll head into the more obsure later.
