Cleveland: A Cultural Center - Panel Discussion

A fascinating panel discussion organized in conjunction with our exhibition Cleveland: A Cultural Center and why Cleveland became an important cultural arts center. This exhibition of over 150 works originating from the Cleveland School, a community of exceptionally talented artists which began to take shape in Northeast Ohio during the early 1900s. The men and women of the Cleveland School would go on to contribute a staggering number of beautiful and important works of art and design throughout much of the 20th century.
