CLEVELAND, Ohio - The Arabic word associated with the kind of date that comes from a palm tree is tamir.

You learn this from Michael Rakowitz, a 44-year-old Chicago-based conceptual artist producing what may become the emotional centerpiece of the first FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art, which opens July 14 and runs through September 30 at venues across Northeast Ohio.

Entitled "A Color Removed," the Rakowitz project will be an installation accompanied by community dialogues at the nonprofit Spaces gallery, at 2900 Detroit Avenue in Cleveland's Ohio City neighborhood.
