It’s a TRIP, literally, at TRIPPY TRIP and OPEN YARDS II
The Grateful Dead’s album, What a Long Strange Trip It’s Been, is a sentiment that many of us can relate to as we close down the surreal year of 2020. The next two shows at Yards Projects are literally a trip, or will invite you to take a trip, over to a new creative space not far from Worthington Yards.
In Trippy Trip, artists will take viewers off-road to escape to eye-popping, psychedelic and fractal worlds and primordial Boschian landscapes. Artists provide visual feasts of alchemy, tessellations and non-sensical MC Escher-like detours. This exhibition will celebrate unexplainable paranormal stories, in-between states, and trap doors—and it promises to be a TRIP! Artists include, Mark Brabant, Orville Brown, Stephen Calhoun, Steve Ehret, Chad Fedorovich, Jonah Jacobs, Kasumi, Sean Jason Kelly, Joyce Morrow Jones, Rita Montlack, Angelica Pozo, Edward Raffel, Christopher Stofan, Casey Vogt, Sean Wheeler, and Evie Zimmer.
Bringing in the New Year, the Dalad Group—the developers behind Worthington Yards—will open their next residential project called Tinnerman Lofts. Tinnerman Lofts has 58 residential apartments that are located on the corner of Fulton and Lorain in Ohio City. Like Worthington Yards, this new project will continue showcasing local art, murals, a video/film program and commissioned works by fifty-plus artists. The Dalad Collection will add eighty-plus new works that celebrate Cleveland art and artists at every turn.
Tinnerman’s community living room will feature outstanding commissions by Edward Raffel, Dana Depew, and Michael Loderstedt. Lenticular photographic murals will dazzle on each floor by artists Donald Black Jr., Rian Brown, and Bruce Checefsky. Jacob Koestler curates an amazing line-up of film and video artists which include Miguel Rivera-Vera, Erin Duhigg, Kelley O’Brien and Kara Güt. Other acquisitions to the Dalad Collection are by artists Mark Howard, Yana Mikho-Misho, Shari Wilkins, John Saile, Julian Stanczak, Jefferson Pinder, Vaughn Wascovich, Mary Martin, Claudio Orso, Hadley K. Conner, Baila Litton, Sophie Schwartz, Jason Milburn, Keith Berr, Dana Oldfather, Margaret Yuko Kimura, Mindy Tousley, Bruce Edwards, Judith Saloman, Dave King, Hildur Ásgeirsdóttir Jónsson, Barbara Bachtell, Todd Hoak, Dale Goode, Rebecca Cross, John Scavnicky, Jennifer Leach, Rita Montlack, Dexter Davis, Lori Kella, Liz Maugans, Bruce Checefsky, Daniel Levin, and Lisa Schonberg.
To celebrate this occasion, a parallel exhibition, Open Yards II, will show new work by artists and provide them with another opportunity to sell their work at Yards Project Space, the gallery inside Worthington Yards. Tours of Tinnerman Lofts will be scheduled throughout the run of the show.
