It is great to see more progress in the growth of the art scene in the mid-town and St. Clair arts district area, with the opening of Level Three Gallery this weekend... another sign of vibrant life. I like the work of the artists I know from this group so am glad to see them situated again - some showed together at Buzz, on W. 25th, which I liked very much. I look forward to seeing this new space and their new work. So, this Friday, June 1, art and culture lovers should start with a tour through the Hough bakeries, at the Inner Circle, for Happy Hour, then head over to CIA for their opening of Design Values 2, and then to Level Three for their opening, described below. By the end of the evening, you will not have driven far, will have done lots of great, authentic Cleveland things, and had plenty of opportunites for good company, art, food and cheer.

Breuer and Hough Bakeries

The most important thing civic-minded, planning oriented, culturally-concerned citizens may do June 8th is attend the Cleveland City Planning Commission meeting regarding Cuyahoga County seeking permission to demolish the Breuer - see posting on this here. After fighting the good fight there (to save the Breuer, or argue otherwise), while you are in a feisty planning state of mind, stop by the Hough Bakeries, in East Cleveland, for some open social hacking on what went down that morning and what we can do to make sure this region is planned better in the future, including with what we are working on in East Cleveland.

Sometimes a sliver of an image, a hint of fragrance, a word or a small gesture has the power to transcend time and space where intimate collections of buried imagination are stored.

Such is the work in Storage Space (Jun 22-Aug 3, 2007), the artists invest the art with pathways to real or imagined histories.
