"Save The Schreckengosts" Midsummer Night Celebration

Help the Lakewood Schools kick start the campaign to restore and preserve two Schreckengost treasures, the Civic Auditorium’s "Early Settler" and the L Room's Great Lakes mural. Join us in the Reinberger Galleries of the Cleveland Institute of Art on Wednesday, July 9, from 6-9 p.m., for a midsummer night celebration. Both masterpieces, iconic Lakewood public art, were installed at Lakewood High School in the 1950s.

Enjoy delicious food, libations, and live entertainment by members of the LHS jazz ensemble in a gorgeous setting. Tickets start at $75.

Viktor Schreckengost, father of industrial design in America, was truly a national treasure. He started the nation's first industrial design program at the Cleveland School of Art, now Cleveland Institute of Art.
