Edward E. Parker Museum of Art: Ready for Summer 2024

Edward E. Parker, Lady with Nubian Knots, Stoneware.

We have new art on display in our lower-level studio. If you have time, stop by and check it out. Ed Parker has a new work-in-progress, and students have recently completed soon-to-be fired sculptures. We have placed an assortment of Black history crosswords, brain teasers, and word puzzles in the first-level gallery, near the display of Ed Parker’s full-figured women in clay. We also have a selection of unique greeting cards and books available for purchase.

Intergenerational Art Class

It’s A Family Affair intergenerational art class will begin June 18, and conclude on July 25. Classes will meet from 6 to 8 pm on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Participants will engage in a variety of individual, team, and group projects. This interactive program is available to families at no cost, and is supported by funding from Cuyahoga Arts and Culture. Completed student work will be displayed in a final public exhibition. The flyer for this program is posted on clevelandartsevents.com.

The Gift of Art

The Gift of Art is sponsored by African American Artists of Cleveland and Edward Parker. Each month, artists gather at the Creative Art Complex to network, discuss current events and art, as they display a selection of their work for sale. Light refreshments will be served. Upcoming dates include Saturdays, June 15 (celebrating Juneteenth), July 20, and August 17, from 2 to 7 pm.

Art Classes

We have a bi-weekly evening art class in the lower-level studio. Seniors attend for free, but all are welcome. Students work in a variety of mediums, and possess differing skill levels. No experience is necessary, so intimidation is not a factor. Join us from 6 to 8 pm each Tuesday and Thursday evening.


Do you have an idea for a community-centered project? Consider collaborating with EEPMOA. Because collaborative projects utilize shared resources, they are mutually beneficial. We welcome your project ideas and look forward to working towards a shared goal. We believe that art has transformative power, fosters social development, and builds character.

Share Your Work

Ed Parker is reviewing portfolios for consideration in upcoming art shows. These exhibits will feature the work of three artists and will remain on display for six weeks. The roster is not full, so if you are interested in exhibiting your work, please make an appointment with Mr. Parker to provide sample work.

The museum is open 10 am to 3 pm Monday through Friday. For visits outside of normal business hours, call to make an appointment. We would love to take you on a tour of the galleries and studio space.
