Humble G
We bring you the music and the inspirational story of Humble G - Myles Alexander Keaton Smith - a self-taught Cleveland violin virtuoso whose talents so impressed his mentors that they labeled him ‘humble,’ so he wouldn’t become too full of himself. And, it worked. Humble’s music is that of his generation, hip-hop, but instead of lyrics full of anger and hate, he delivers messages of hope.

Cleveland’s Museum of Contemporary Art: Michelle Grabner Exhibition
As MOCA begins the second year at their new location in University Circle, they’ve embarked upon a first: a solo art exhibit! Cleveland’s Museum of Contemporary Art is showcasing the works of artist Michelle Grabner, a married mom with two children who only had to look as far as her kitchen for inspiration.

The Humphrey Bogart Film Festival
Key Largo… The African Queen… Casablanca.... You don’t have to be a film-buff to get the connection - Oscar winning actor Humphrey Bogart! For fans of ‘Bogie,’ there’s good news. Next year, The Humphrey Bogart Film Festival takes over an island off the coast of Florida that bears the name of one of Bogart’s best films, “Key Largo.” We preview some of the festival events at this year’s festival.
