CLASSICAL REVOLUTION CLEVELAND: Classical Music in a brew pub might sound like a revolutionary idea. And to some it is!

AKRON CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL MURAL: Northeast Ohio has long been regarded as one of the finest regions in the country for quality medical care. One of the best at providing services for younger patients is Akron Children’s Hospital. Recently, the hospital unveiled a big art project as a way of thanking the patients and visitors for their support AND honoring the hard work of an exceptional staff.
