Cleveland History Special Event

Three authors discuss their two books about Cleveland history: "The Birth of Downtown Cleveland: A Vision Interrupted" by Dave Ford and Brad Schwartz and "LGBTQ Cleveland: Images of Modern America" by Ken Schneck. The 1903 Plan for Cleveland’s downtown laid out a vision of neoclassical splendor, but the plan suffered setbacks from all sides. Presenting previously unpublished historic photographs, authors Ford and Schwartz detail a story more than a century in the making. Schneck’s "LGBTQ Cleveland" covers nearly five decades of Cleveland history and features more than 150 photos. Books will be available for sale and signing at this event.

Film - My Left Foot (1989) Directed by Jim Sheridan

No one expects much from Christy Brown (Daniel Day-Lewis). Born with crippling cerebral palsy, Christy is a burden to his working-class Irish family. His paralysis and inability to communicate lead them to believe he is intellectually disabled. His experience of the world is limited to the use of his one controllable limb - his left foot. With the help of his strong-willed mother Bridget (Brenda Fricker), Christy overcomes his hardship to become a celebrated painter, poet and author.

Concert - IN2ATIVE

IN2ATIVE’s goal is to emotionally connect with their audience while breaking the stereotypes of two historically conservative, classical instruments, the flute and cello. With their music quoted as "Hot and Edgy," IN2ATIVE's vibe is anything but traditional. Although classically trained at the Cleveland Institute of Music, this avant-garde flute and cello duo specializes in a fusion of musical styles, combining the street rhythms of beat-box with jazz, hip-hop and rock, creating its own unique genre. All of their pieces are original compositions, inspired by events and experiences, both past and present. We are certain you’ve never heard anything like this before.

Film - "The Shape of Water "(2017)

At a high-security government research facility, Elisa Esposito (Sally Hawkins) is a forlorn evening janitor. The mute Elisa is trapped in her mundane daily routine until a classified specimen is delivered to the laboratory. The arrival of the Amazonian amphibian man piques the interest of her coworker Zelda (Octavia Spencer), and they begin to observe the creature, known as the “Asset.” To Elisa’s surprise, the Asset displays humanoid behaviors, and she quickly finds herself bonding with the helpless creature over their shared fragility.
