Ethiopian photographer and photojournalist, Micheal Tsegaye is the Cleveland Print Room’s Creative Fusion International Artist-In-Residence for this project. Tsegaye will transform the Cleveland Print Room Gallery into the Cuyahoga River and its crooked bends from aerial photos and photographs from the riverbed. Join us for the opening of this exciting exhibition Friday, June 21, from 5-9pm at the Cleveland Print Room. This show will be on display until August 3.



CPR’s Teen Institute Arts Mastery students, with the help of CPR Teaching Artist Melinda Placko, completed a project in which they captured the traces of the overlooked and unseen along the Cuyahoga River. Using the alternative photographic cyanotype process, the students created organic and conceptual results. By creating cyanotypes with water from the Cuyahoga River, it further adds to the mystery of the final outcome. A banner and book will be on display showcasing student's work.
