Seasonal Special Happenings

Award-Winning Art

When: Thu., July 9 2015

Cleveland-based painter Michelangelo Lovelace has reason to celebrate. A number of his paintings are currently on view as part of How to Remain Human at MOCA Cleveland. He was also presented one of this year’s Mid-Career Artists Awards by the Cleveland Arts Prize at a special ceremony last month at the Cleveland Museum of Art. At 6 tonight, Lovelace will discuss his life and career during a special presentation at the Happy Dog at the Euclid Tavern. Lovelace is a student of the late Rev. Albert Wagner. Last year, he was awarded a Creative Workforce Fellowship by Cuyahoga Arts and Culture and Community Partnership for Arts and Culture. His work deals with inner city issues; including themes of poverty, violence, racial inequality, crime and other socio-politically charged topics. After the talk, visitors are invited to walk down Euclid Avenue to explore How to Remain Human at MOCA Cleveland until the museum closes at 9 p.m. Free. (Usmani)
