"Rosa Parks, Rosa Parks" was the chant as about 300 school chidren from the Cleveland Arts and Social Sciences Academy marched through the streets of downtown Cleveland. They were celebrating the life of Rosa Parks. She started the Civil Rights movement in 1955 as a result of her refusal to move from her seat to go to the back of a bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Rosa Parks passed away on October 25, 2005 at the age of 92.

Arts and the Cleveland Mayor's Race

Submitted by Kevin Cronin on Mon, 10/31/2005 - 09:19.

Both Mayor Campbell and Council President Jackson met with the arts community last week.  Attendance was low, both at the Play House on the east with Campbell and Cleveland Public Theatre on the westside with Jackson. The Campbell strategy was to identify a top 20 list of reasons Campbell has advanced the arts, with art summits, expansion of live/work zones and public funding through the "1% for arts" set aside that is a part of public construction contracts.  She says her track record merits her return to office for another four years.  Jackson said, through his leadership, he deserves credit for these initiatives as well, and his record in council deserves the public’s faith and confidence that he will work to represent them well.  But what would be an election without an added dose of cynicism? 

Making Cleveland a world aerosol art capital

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Sat, 10/29/2005 - 23:06.

As I ride the RTA and run around the Cleveland area each day I appreciate how much good aerosol art talent we have. These artists are considered vandals 364 days a year and given a little festival 1 day a year. We should do more for these artists and their art.
