The heART of Cleveland at BAYarts
This holiday season immerse yourself in the art of Cleveland as The heART of Cleveland book comes to life at BAYarts in the form of an exhibition.
The vibe will be pure Cleveland, with a hint of what’s on the horizon for this project. “Seeing this exhibit will give the viewer a first-hand experience of what is inside the book,” says the local artist and book curator Scott Kraynak. “There are also many artists in this exhibit who are not in the book but will be in the second one, which I just recently decided I would do once I finish work on another big project. So the viewer will also get a sneak peek of what is in store in this next edition.”
Kraynak feels the exhibition will encourage people to be proud of Cleveland. “I expect viewers will not only be amazed by the quality of artists and art born in and inspired by our great city, but also impressed by the great diversity and uniqueness of the landmarks, architecture, people, nature, music, and food that Cleveland possesses which make it such a great place.” He added, “I think that even a life-long Clevelander will come away from this exhibit with an even greater appreciation of our city.”
