“There but for the grace of…Temporary Shelters”


Here Here Gallery

The opening exhibition of the 11,000-square-foot Here Here Gallery in downtown Cleveland, “There but for the grace of… Temporary Shelters,” drew viewers ranging from regular art patrons, office workers, and homeless advocates to devotees of the Cleveland Orchestra, temporarily located just down the street. Curated by Bernice Steinbaum, formerly of the Steinbaum-Krauss Gallery in New York, who invited participants from around the country this show avoided elitism and pushed the idea of art not only as a place of cultural ideas but also as a way of working toward solutions to societal problems… See the print version of Sculpture Magazine for the full review.
