Savoring the West Side Market Centennial

Savor: 100 Years at the West Side Market
We take a look at the oldest indoor-outdoor market in Cleveland - the West Side Market. It’s origins date back to 1840, when what would become the “West Side Market” opened across the street from its current location. Cleveland was growing at the beginning of the 20th century, and so was the need for a bigger place to shop. In 1902, the city purchased the site that’s now home for the West Side Market, and it opened in 1912. This month kicks off a year-long celebration of the Market’s 100th anniversary, and we join in by presenting a preview of “Savor:100 Years at the West Side Market,” a new documentary produced by our partners, The Plain Dealer.

Avenue Q at Cain Park, Cleveland Heights
Next week kicks off the 2012 season of one of the nation’s oldest municipally owned parks dedicated to the arts - Cain Park, located in Cleveland Heights. The season gets underway with the production of Avenue Q, the Sesame Street-inspired musical that not only calls for the cast members to sing, dance and act, but challenges them not to put the spotlight on themselves, but on the real stars of the show - the “muppets.”

Creative Voices Art Summit
Last month, Cleveland State University hosted its annual Creative Voices Summit right here in our Westfield Insurance Studio Theater. It was a freewheeling conversation about the nature of imagination and creativity, moderated by former chair of the NEA, John Frohnmayer. The panelists included Neuroscientist and pianist, Dr. Larry Sherman; Dr. Janna Levin, a theoretical astrophysicist, novelist and visual artist; award-winning Cleveland architect Paul Westlake Jr.; and Cleveland Chef and acclaimed author, Michael Ruhlman. They saw creativity at the heart of innovation, entrepreneurship and scientific breakthroughs.
