Heights Arts collaborates with JCC to present Here and There, Now and Then

Where did we come from? It’s one of the perennial questions that we ask as children, then again as adults seeking to understand our past. Here and There, Now and Then, opening June 15 at the JCC, is a collaborative, interactive art project between Heights Arts and the Mandel Jewish Community Center which addresses this question by gathering written and visual stories about how people got to Cleveland: where their parents and grandparents started out, and what brought them from that place, then, to this place, now.

Artist facilitator Kate Atherton and staff from Lake Erie Ink began working with community groups in May. “We have created many offsite art projects before—such as Fencepiration and Knitscape—and we are thrilled to give people an opportunity to creatively explore their heritage,” says Rachel Bernstein, Heights Arts executive director. All are invited to contribute to the project during art & writing workshops in June and July at the JCC.
