We all know the story of famed naturalist and painter John Audubon who studied and documented birds. The reaction from one Ohio native who saw an exhibition of his work in 1830 left her feeling like something was missing, which put Genevieve Jones on a quest to follow closely in his footsteps, earning her the nickname, “America’s Other Audobon.”
Coming of age for young adults can be a challenging experience, especially these days. You see them working at coffee shops and pubs, full of ambition and pride, yet unsure of where they might land in this world. My next guest isn’t immune to that anxiety of where she belongs, and how she fits in, but with her music and faith to lead her she knows there’s a “Safe Place to Land” - which is the title of her new CD. Recently, Lori Triplett landed in our Key Bank studio at the Idea Center in Playhouse Square.
And a term (and book by the same name) has emerged that appreciates Cleveland’s history, people and places called Rust Belt Chic. Richey Piiparinen, the editor and William Scheele, owner of Kokoon Arts Gallery, which is hosting an exhibition on the Rust Belt Chic theme, stopped by our Applause studio.
