The Cleveland Museum of Art has been hosting a series of events on Wednesday nights called Art on Tap. A band plays, you can buy food or drinks, and there is usually a theme. The theme of their last event was Bare Essentials. A friend and I went, and we were given a tour of the new East Wing, with a focus on nudity. Cleveland’s claim to fame is the Specer Tunick, pictured above, for which some 3,000 Clevelander’s posed naked. You can see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Key Bank Tower in the background.
I really enjoyed the Friedlander exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Art. I honestly hadn’t heard of the photographer until I saw the exhibit advertised and didn’t know what to expect. Lee Friedlander describes his photography as the American Social Landscape. There is a mix of self-portraits, well known landmarks, everyday life, and even nudes. His shots are interesting and unique like the reflection photo below. Some of the photographs chronicled the development of different industries including in the Cleveland and Pittsburgh area.
