Art Institutions and Suburban Kitsch

I’ve been trying to get out more here in Cleveland since it went for 60 degrees to about 19 in a matter of a day, and back, and then, back again. Schitzo doesn’t even begin to describe it. Thankfully I have friends who also wanted to get out art farting, or drive in the snow to the suburbs to do Prospector Estates fun-times (thanks everyone!).

I went to the opening of Transformer Station in Ohio City, The Cleveland Museum of Art, SPACES, and a really fun estate sale at this crazy pimped out 1960s house with an indoor pool and lots of medical equipment. Fun times in Cleveland today! Transformer Station had some very good and, well, some “eh” photography. I like what they have done with the former foundry, but it still felt very stuck-up in a way — and others agreed it felt stiff. Still, I’m glad it is there and serves as another outpost for CMA. Cleveland Museum of Art was having a happy hour event and opened their new atrium, which is quite amazing. It was fun to see all these gals dressed up like it was a school dance for thisevent. The interaction touch screen at Gallery One, I was not a fan, since all I could think of was GERMS GERMS GERMS. My friend Dott had her last day at SPACES, and we exited just as artist Jimmy Kuehnle arrived on his “twinkling tricycle”. Oh, and it wouldn’t be a Cleveland art night without “Crash” showing up and ruining things. You know him. He even has a Facebook Page dedicated to sighting and incidents.

Here are some photos.
