Thanks to the State of Ohio through the Ohio Cultural Facilities Commission and Harbor Roofing Company, SPACES finally has a new roof after decades. Goodbye leaks, hello safe art and many more years without that headache!
I bet you always wondered how our rooftop sign was attached as well. Now you get a behind the scenes peek.
We'd also like to thank the Ohio Governors since this entire process initiated years ago: The Hon. John R. Kasich, The Hon. Ted Strickland and The Hon. Bob Taft.
We often have various musical selections drifting through the air at SPACES and being hummed by the staff. Below are the staff's top artists this week:
They Might Be Giants - Here Comes Science
They Might Be Giants - Here Come the 123s
Dan Zanes (who, by the way is playing at the Beachland Ballroom tonight with the del fuegos)
Oliver Twist - one of the broadway recordings
(All thanks to the 6-year old in my house.)
The Black Keys
Clutch (the usual)
Earth, Wind & Fire

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! We appreciate the support that we receive from our friends out there—in the form of donations, volunteering, visiting, and spreading the word. You are our valentines! Thank you.
You may start noticing stacks of intriguing newspapers around town. These particular newspapers have a red cover, black text and pointing hands along the lower margin. This is the Collective Arts Network Journal (or CAN Journal). The brainchild of Zygote Press's Liz Maugans, the CAN Journal shines a spotlight on 28 different art organizations in our region to give a more comprehensive view of the region's creative output.
With the design and editing assistance of JoAnn Dickey and Michael Gill, and an essay from Douglas Max Utter, this publication is geared toward informing the public of the sheer scope of visual art in and around Cuyahoga county. The CAN Journal is littered with essays by area arts leaders extolling the virtues of the other art organizations in the region (I wrote about Brandt Gallery in Tremont, and Nancy Heaton of BAYarts wrote about SPACES).
We (Kate Sopko, Residency Champion, and Martha Loughridge, Development Director) arrived safely this morning in Amsterdam. While we explored the central city, we came across (not completely coincidentally) De Kattenkabinet - The Cat Cabinet Museum. (Ben and Jessica were were thinking of you!) Housed in the ornate rooms of a 1667 building alongside prestigious lawyers' and banks' offices, cat sculptures, paintings, posters, miniatures, and books about felines are exhibited in an amusingly professional and serious way. Live piano music filled the air during our visit. Created by the building owner, who lives with his five cats live on the upper floors, the museum was created in 1990 to preserve the memory of his beloved cat Tom. It was a sight to behold!
