About the Cleveland Sculptors Network Panel/Master Reviews
In 2016, The Sculpture Center and the commercial Cleveland gallery 2731 Prospect (closed April 30, 2017) formed the Cleveland Sculptors Network/Getting There from Here as a venture to increase the reach and connectivity of sculptors in Northeast Ohio and our greater region. We are hosting a series of evening panel discussions with a social gathering and Master Reviews & Collective Discussion the following day. The moderated panel discussions focus on selected contemporary issues in sculpture, issues facing artists living and working outside major metropolitan cities, and strategies to have sculptors’ work shown beyond our region. The panelists include a mid-career sculptor from outside our region by invitation and one or two regional sculptors. These panels are open to everyone who is interested — the public, sculptors, artists of all media, academics and students.
On the following day after the panel, the visiting sculptor holds a private Master Review & Collective Discussion with an intimate group of 5 to 6 selected sculptors of Northeast Ohio and our greater region. This is a group critical feedback discussion of the work presented by the selected artists, intended to foster ongoing ties of the sculptors with the visiting artist and among the regional sculptors for future interactions.
