"All Things Cleveland" CALL FOR ARTISTS

"All Things Cleveland"

Group exhibition about Cleveland by Cleveland artists.

An open call for artists in all mediums for an exhibition about this glorious city. Artists must be originally from or are currently residing and working in Cleveland – this is very important. The work has to be from the perspective of a Clevelander.

Please absolutely no beautiful little cityscapes, pictures of the bridge man sculptures or vibrant photos of the fireworks on the 4th at Edgewater etc. I am attempting to produce an exhibition that promotes a self deprecating view of Cleveland by Clevelanders. The work must represent or depict Cleveland in some way, shape, or form. Think more of a less positive Harvey Pekarian viewpoint, burnt perogies, the Big Chuck and Little John show on a black and white television with no antenna, the continual grief and despair we feel each and every day, the adverse effect our sports teams have on our mental state, our bleak and depressing outlook on life, etc, etc. All the good things.

The opening reception will be complete with a live polka band and sauerkraut and kielbasa will be available along with POC beer - lukewarm of course.

Please submit images or working ideas by July 1, 2008 to:
