Guerilla Haiku Goes to Cleveland!

The Cleveland Public Theater (CPT) is one of those regional theaters that fully embrace their commitment to serving the needs of their community.  And the Gordon Square Arts District is the multi-organization consortium (including CPT) that  is revitalizing the Detroit-Shoreway  neighborhood of Cleveland.

Samuel Gompers HS Garden Launch, May 31st, 2013

Hot day. 90 degrees in the shade. And there was very little shade to be found in this relentless school parking lot in Mott Haven, BX.

The young men and women hoisted felt planters to different levels on the chain link fence, adding color and green to the barren space. And we saw a garden happen,...
