University Circle…it’s the cultural center of Cleveland with a rich history. It’s the home of one of the world’s greatest Orchestras, timeless art and architecture…but that’s all about to change. On this episode of Applause, we take you inside and out of the new kid on the block, MOCA, for a look at how the building’s sleek design, contemporary art and presence is shaking up the neighborhood…
