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…
And Dee Perry speaks with MOCA Executive Director Jill Snyder, overseeing the move back to University Circle.
Also we look at the impact of MOCA's move to the neighborhood with Steve Litt, Art and Architecture Critic, The Plain Dealer and Paul Westlake, Westlake Reed Leskosky.
Plus Peter Galvin, MOCA Board of Trustees and Hope Hungerford, MOCA Honorary Board of Trustees reflect on the founders of MOCA, Marjorie Talalay and Nina Sundell who founded the museum as an art gallery selling art.
