Cleveland Exhibition Explores 'A Tale of Two Cities'

Posted: Nov. 27th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

Artists who find their talent in Cleveland often face a cultural tug of war: to stay at home, or to move on the bigger, badder Brooklyn to continue their art? The Cleveland Institute of Art has decided to explore this "Tale of Two Cities" by pitting art from Cleveland artists who chose to stay against those who expand their horizons elsewhere with a new exhibition.

The brain drain that flows from Northeast Ohio’s art, music and theater programs is widely known. We train ’em, then we lose ’em. What’s less well-known is what happens to all the locally educated artists after they leave and settle elsewhere.

The premise of a cleverly conceived exhibition at the Cleveland Institute of Art is to make a direct comparison between young artists who stay in the area after graduating and those who leave. The implicit question is whether those who stick around do better than those who have moved to Brooklyn, N.Y., which has become a magnet for aspiring artists.
