New Triennial Offers Artists the Canvas of Cleveland
CLEVELAND — The art world loves to flock to exotic locales for shows and fairs. Will it come to Cleveland?
Fred Bidwell, a collector and philanthropist here, is betting it will, to the tune of $5 million — his money and that of other donors. “We’re at the front line of a lot of the changes, conflict and currents in the air today,” he said. “Cleveland is a blue city surrounded by an ocean of red. Artists have really been interested in creating new art within this context.”
