Cleveland Named Top 25 Arts Destination


It’s always celebration time when Cleveland makes a list that doesn’t include the words “pollution” or “junk food.” And even though we’re not familiar with AmericanStyle magazine, we applaud its decision to name our city among the Top 25 Arts Destinations in its latest issue. Actually, Cleveland checks in at No. 16 in the Mid-Sized City category of the 10th annual readers’ poll – but we’re not gonna quibble with specifics. Truth is, our museums and theaters are better than those found in Providence, Ann Arbor, and Cincinnati. In your face, other mid-sized cities! We’re not even gonna let the fact that the No. 1-ranked city, Pittsburgh, is a mere stone’s throw from Cleveland. Because that’s how we roll here. --Michael Gallucci
