Although the overall exterior of the building is pretty lame, its location on the south side of the Boston Harbor makes for a nice view to the North.   Once inside the lobby of the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), these brightly colored wall glass panels are what you see.    I also took in the Shepard Fairey exhibit.

This photo is a section of a telephoto shot of an  industrial, grid connected solar steam electrical generating station just east of Boron, California.  The air temperature was about 40 degrees F.  

One of the downsides of these generators - more are scheduled for construction - is that they require fresh water for the steam condensation towers - losing the water to evaporation.

Artist for all Time: Clarence E. Van Duzer, Rest In Peace

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Sat, 01/31/2009 - 01:22.

Clarence E. Van Duzer at Convivium 33

I was very saddened to learn today we lost a great artist, loved friend and family to many, and inspirational Clevelander with the passing of Clarence E. Van Duzer. I knew Van Duzer as a family friend and always was inspired and energized by talking with him, his work, and his approach to life. At our last meeting, at his Convivium opening, in 2006, he was so strong and clear it seemed he would live on forever.

LUCKY'S CAFE - CLEVELAND'S WEST SIDE

 

Lucky's Cafe is on the West Side of Cleveland right down the street from the Onion Domed church. Maurice Small has a very nice garden in the summer patio next to Lucky's.   Across the street during warm weather is a local farmer's market.    

These type of proprietor owned/operated establishments are vital to healthy neighborhoods.

As I recall, Kuzzo's was down around 40th on St Clair.   It had closed up for good when I looked at the menu on the front window last year.   But I thought that both their menu and their house "rules" were worth recording.

I think HEK went to trial in January 09.  However, I was unable to attend.   This work is on the RR overpass over E42 or E41st near St Clair.   Would you rather see this or an expensive Cleveland+ banner touting "We've Got It All Together"?

THE MESSAGE IS IN THE SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT

dream mural woodhill clevelandIn my travels around Cleveland and elsewhere I realized that one of the landscape features in which I am most interested are the “markings” made on the environment. I don’t have the articulate smell of a dog – nosing around for that intense spot where a prior dog had lifted their leg. Rather it is my eyes that are influenced by the nuanced messages scattered about.
