John Luther Adams
Veils and Vesper
Opens Friday, September 26, 2014
St. John’s Episcopal Church
2600 Church Ave. W. 26th St.
Cleveland, OH 44113
Cleveland Clinic Arts & Medicine Institute and Lutheran Hospital are proud to partner with the Cleveland Museum of Art for the installation of Pulitzer Prize winning composer John Luther Adams’ Veils and Vesper. The interior of St. John’s Episcopal Church will serve as the canvas for a ten-speaker electroacoustic soundscape, where listeners can move throughout the space to control the blend of sound.
The six hour work, which can be enjoyed at any length, provides a meditative and contemplative environment in the middle of Cleveland’s bustling Ohio City neighborhood.
Cut & Paste
September 17 – December 11, 2014
Cleveland Clinic Art Exhibition Area – between Q and G buildings
While the term “cut and paste” has taken on a new meaning in the digital age, contemporary artists continue to stick with tradition and use collage and paper cutting as a way to extend and explore imagery. The artists in this exhibition use faux fur, candy wrappers, found photographs, even fruit stickers — everything is fair game. The results are both intricate and surprising and speak to the different ways that artists use the materials around them to make their work. The exhibition includes artworks from the Cleveland Clinic collection as well as works on loan by an international group of artists working in a variety of different media.
