If you haven't come down to Coventry to see the #insideoutcle public art display - get down there and check it out! #LoveForCov🚨#Insideoutcle Artist Feature🚨 Candace Cunard is a local photographer, who unveiled her piece “Primordial Mother” at #InsideOutCLE. The figure that Candace awakens in her creation is the “Divine Mother” based on the “Tree of Life.” This godly figure stands high above bd's Mongolian, showering Coventry Village with her divinity. The usage of golds and silvers, representing the alpha and omega, compliment not only the piece but the emotions behind her creativity. “Mother” is also seen wearing serpent earrings, signifying Kundalini rising. Lastly, a flower pouring out of “Mothers” mouth, showing an offering of life and love. Candace welcomes GOD to our home in all her glory. A must see!!

ARTFUL artists & supporters really showed up and shared their support of our Coventry PEACE project with Library Board members at last week’s meeting. We were moved to tears, and incredibly grateful. While an agreement has yet to be reached, there is movement and discussions are ongoing, all thanks to those who expressed their support. Please continue to let the Cleveland Heights - University Heights Library Board know that you are in support of both sides reaching a compromise that allows for the creation of a permanent arts, culture & services nonprofit hub. Educate your friends and neighbors about our special group of nonprofits and get them involved, too. If anyone has any questions, they can email info@coventrypeacecampus.org. You guys rock - THANK YOU!!

Coventry PEACE Campus
Last week a number of supporters of the Coventry PEACE Campus spoke out in support of our project at the monthly Heights Library board meeting. Here are some highlights. We are happy to announce there are glimmers of hope, but we're not there yet! Please let the Library Board know that you support the efforts of our member organizations in their goal of establishing a permanent arts, culture and services nonprofit hub in the Coventry PEACE building.

With each disappointing cancellation caused by the public health crisis, there often has been a creative reaction or solution, making it all feel a bit better. This is a good example."We were so sad we had to cancel the comics festival, but out of that disappointment came this really beautiful artwork," said Kate Atherton. "Now we have a creative piece that documents this time, and can be added to the Library's zine collection—a small, silver lining." The community's artists delivered, and the result is "Quarantine Zine, Volume 1," a collection of art and comics made by local visual artists during Ohio's shelter-in-place order.

Very cool.Today we are celebrating two National Endowment for the Arts awards! The first is to LAND studio and the Metrohealth Foundation to support artist and resident-led development of community gathering spaces in Clark-Fulton, home to Ohio’s largest Latinx population. The second will expand our Inner City Hues program in the Buckeye, Mount Pleasant, and Woodland Hills neighborhoods. Both grants involve a two-year process to work with stakeholders and community leadership to engage residents and artists in the creation of culturally relevant artworks. The work has begun and we can't wait to share our progress with you! https://buff.ly/37jmWm5 Thank you NEA!

More information regarding a concerning incident at Zygote Press, Inc. a few days ago. The print shown in the accompanying image displays a wonderful writing by Toni Morrison, and it says it all...On Saturday, June 6th, members of the Zygote Press community organized artists to print signs, posters, and other material to provide to anyone marching to protest the tragic murder of George Floyd and to support racial equity movements. Due to COVID-19, the event took place outside, in the back of Zygote’s premise and was somewhat visible from the street. Towards the end of the event, the 15-20 participants were approached by 10-12 police officers and asked the purpose of the gathering and where the signs were going to be distributed. As one can imagine, being approached and surrounded by so many police is very intimidating and could have quickly escalated into a dangerous confrontation. We are aware, however, that since the printmakers and participants were mostly white, the police treated us differently than they may have if the participants were people of color, which is precisely the point of the demonstrations taking place throughout this country. It is important to note that print has always been a medium of and by the people. The history of printmaking has its origins in protesting injustice. At this time the artists were printing in support of our Black and Brown friends, and family, fighting oppression. Core to Zygote’s mission and bylaws is to support artists while we “increase awareness about contemporary printmaking by creating active communication among artist printmakers and the broader community”. Zygote does not censor artists and believes in the freedom of creative expression. As we stated last week, “we, at Zygote Press, stand with all who are demanding racial justice.” It must be acknowledged that this type of intimidation is nothing new to the Black, Indigenous and People of Color in the community. Zygote stands in support with all who are demanding racial justice and freedom of creative expression. Zygote does not condone this type of intimidation and will not stand for the censorship of artists. Artwork, letterpress print by Zygote Press Artist Erin Adair.
