In an age of online newspapers, selfies and Instagram, some say print is dead! But one organization, the Cleveland Print Room, is working to preserve a particular type of printing: photo processing.
With the renovation of the Cleveland Museum of Art completed, the museum has increased its size by more than 50%. What that means for visitors is a chance to see more art. On view now in the brand new West Wing are more than 500 treasures from the museum’s Asian collection. In the past, those artifacts could never have been displayed in one portion of the museum. CMA’s Curator of Chinese Art Anita Chung talks about the challenges and surprises encountered moving the collection from its former location, in the museum basement into a modern world class space.
The International Consumer Electronics Show, held every year in Las Vegas, is the world’s largest gathering place for the next generation of innovative technology. Remember the VCR, the Xbox and the Digital Satellite? They all debuted at CES. This year, our resident tech guru Jared Bendis, the Creative New Media Officer at Case Western Reserve University, attended the show and brought back a few samples of the next generation of gadgets.
