Mayors, Managers, and Trustees: A Portrait of Cuyahoga County Officials

Thirty intrepid photographers have fanned out through Cuyahoga County to create portraits of 61 Mayors and municipal administrators. Printed in black and white (with a color selfie of the photographer and Mayor) this exhibition is a snapshot of the face of politics today.


The Woman’s Self Portrait Show

Forty women were invited to show their true selves in a myriad of colors and styles. Deep, introspective or just plain funny, the participants strut their stuff.
