Scene Podcast: Gambling Sculptures, Artists in Cleveland, Put-in-Bay Rape Charges and More


This week host Craig Lyndall chats with Eric Sandy and Doug Brown about a whole podcast load of fun stuff. There's the goofy (read: tacky) idea of the Horseshoe Casino wanting to put gambling-themed sculptures in the old Stanley Block building space, this week's feature story about the state of Cleveland's art scene as told through conversations with five artists, the positives and negatives working artists face in Cleveland, rape charges at Put-in-Bay and the goofy lawsuit by a former Medina basketball player.
