Cleveland Bridge Project this weekend

A pilot of next year's Ingenuity Fest, The Bridge Project, below the Detroit-Superior Bridge happens this weekend. Always wanted to explore it? Now's your chance. Performance, music and art.

Ingenuity will venture out of its Public Square/ PlayhouseSquare district and explore an urban space that lies central to Cleveland with spectacular views of downtown, the Cuyahoga River, the Flats, Lake Erie: the streetcar level of the Detroit Superior Bridge, immediately below and parallel to the vehicular level. Ingenuity will transform this span, about 50 feet wide in most sections, almost a mile long, with fabulous nooks, crannies, tunnels and cisterns at both the east and west ends, with art installations, exhibits and performances, many involving technology.

This experience will take place Friday September 25, opening at 4 pm, closing at midnight and continue Saturday September 26, from noon to midnight. It will be free to the public and include arts and crafts vendors, food and beverage vendors (including beer and wine), buskers and solo performers positioned across the great span of the bridge with the more complex installations and performances taking place at either end. The event will include, as at all Ingenuity events, most exhibits and performances are family friendly and each night closes with a musical event.

A 'Thank You' from Paige

As one of the golfers [in name only] in the Brian Hosier Benefit Golf Outing last Sunday, 9.6, I can confirm that we all had a GREAT time. Here's a message from Paige:

'Whether or not you were able to attend the event last weekend, I am pleased to report that it was a smashing success! The weather could not have been more perfect; the golfers had a good time on the links; the indoor picnic, silent auction, and raffle was well-attended and so many walked away with some great prizes. Brian had a good day as well, and was pleased to be able to visit with all his supporters. THANK YOU ALL for you kindness and support! Thanks to Michael Hosier for making it all happen, and to Erin for coordinating some great auction items (and bringing extra helpers from NYC).'

"Getting Weird" Opening Sat. 9.12 6PM–11PM

"Getting Weird" with artists Jake Kelly, Stephe D.K. and Ian P.E.

Opening Reception Saturday September 12th 6pm - 11pm (runs through September 27th)

Low Life Gallery
116001 Waterloo Rd
Cleveland OH 44110

Three of Cleveland's most subversive visual artists have come together for a gallery exhibition of new works that are sure to turn (and scratch) heads. Warped sensationalism, savage instincts, confused meanings, self-loathing and the absurdity of modern society will all be on display. Fittingly featured at Low Life Gallery, "Getting Weird" will not only display the new works of a few of Cleveland's most exciting underground artists, but also contain a wide (price) range of art - large scale masterpieces for the discerning collector as well as affordable smaller pieces for the enthusiast.

Jake Kelly Anyone who has ever walked into The Grog Shop has seen the work of Jake Kelly, he's also created nearly 1,000 fliers for almost every independent music venue in Cleveland over the last 10 years.

Stephe D.K. "Stephe DK" is the alias of Stephen Douglas Kuchna, who received a degree in art from Cleveland State University in 2007. His current body of work mixes aspects of Pop Art and Surrealism to create a dialogue about the strange conditions of our modern age.

Ian P.E. Known in Cleveland as the Editor/Owner of Pink Eye Magazine, Ian moved back to his native Cleveland two years ago after 10 years in San Francisco (and other places). His work for this show can be summed up as "absurd explorations into American leisure activities"...the mediums on display are acrylic and latex on wood panel - loud, colorful and detailed in their figurative representations.
