An Interactive Art Event 

When: Tue., May 16 2017
One of the city's most recent successful collaborations between artists, art organizations and local business owners is the partnership between local arts nonprofit Graffiti HeArt (promoter of urban graffiti and street art) and CLE Urban Winery. The two entities have worked together since last summer, even before the winery opened its doors on Lee Road in Cleveland Heights. Through a combination of murals and fundraising events at the winery, the partners have developed strong relationships with each other, local artists and Cleveland Heights' residents. Teaming up once more, the partners host an interactive art event tonight from 6:30 to 9:30, featuring local artist Rich Cihlar. Cihlar is the co-owner of E11even 2 at 78th Street Studios and owner of the Pop Shop framing studio in Lakewood. In followup to a similar event in March, Cihlar returns to the winery to lead another painting workshop. Described as a twist on traditional "paint and sip" classes, the event offers guests an opportunity to create original art under Cihlar's guidance. Initially painting abstract, textural backgrounds with acrylic paint, participants next will use spray paint and stencils designed and cut by Cihlar himself to create crisp imagery with specific colors on top. At the end of the evening, each participant will leave with a 12-inch-by-12-inch piece of graffiti pop art. Tickets are $30 per person, and include a glass of wine. Proceeds benefit the Graffiti HeArt scholarship fund. (Usmani)
