Edward E. Parker Museum of Art

The Edward E. Parker Museum of Art is pleased to share our upcoming programs and activities as we usher in the Cleveland winter season.

Free Art Classes

For several years, we have offered free art classes for seniors on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00pm. The classes explore a range of projects and utilize a variety of mediums. Artistic expression is far more important to us than individual skill level, so please don’t feel intimidated. If you are interested in joining us, simply show up!

Artist Speak Forum

Edward Parker curates three galleries at Shinn House, located at Mount Zion Congregational Church. The exhibits are displayed for six to eight weeks at a time. After each closing exhibition, the museum hosts an Artist Speak forum that allows the artists to answer questions related to their process and body of work. Visiting artists and guests also contribute to the discussion, which creates a great networking opportunity. This forum is held the Sunday following each Shinn House closing exhibition. We are currently looking for artists to exhibit at Shinn House, so if you are interested, please contact Mr. Parker at the number listed below.

Black History Month

Throughout the month of February, EEPMOA will be celebrating the contributions of African Americans throughout history, with a focus on highlighting the ingenuity of lesser-known African American inventors and innovators. A presentation by Edward Parker will cover the development of Snickerfritz Cultural Workshop for the Arts and the Edward E. Parker Museum of Art.

We would like to thank everyone who attended this year’s Collard Green Cook-off, Arts & Music Festival. For those of you who missed the festival, it was a wonderful event and we look forward to seeing you next year.

Please come by and see three new works by Edward Parker:

  • Nirvana
  • The Masquerade is Over
  • The Resurrection

If you have questions, need information, or would like to schedule a visit, please give us a call.
