If you’re looking for the perfect brunch this weekend, stop by Mahall’s on Sunday Oct. 18 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the Cleveland Print Room’s (CPR) fourth annual Foto Brunch fundraiser. The event also includes silent auctions, 50/50 raffles, cash bar and more.
"Foto Brunch is the Cleveland Print Room’s primary fundraiser,” explains CPR Executive Director Shari Wilkins. “This year we have an MC and there will be music, a 50/50 raffle, and more. We are offering silent auction experiences that are new this year. Attendees can bid on a Monoprint workshop with Liz Maugans, Wet Plate portraiture with Greg Martin, an Akron Art Museum tour and meal with Collections Manager Arnold Tunstall, studio visits and dinner with Michael Loderstedt and Lori Kella, even a photobooth and photogram party are up for grabs."
This year, the Cleveland Print Room is offering special local fare, including French toast from Breadsmith of Lakewood, meats from Saucisson, quiche courtesy of Gray House Pies and coffee from Waterloo’s Six Shooter Coffee – all served by Hollyhock Hill.
Curator of photography at the Cleveland Museum of Art Barbara Tannenbaum is this year’s honorary chairperson, and Rachel H. from WRUW's Guilty Pleasures will MC the event, which will also include music by DJs Thomas and Tania of WFMU's The Real Nitty Gritty.
"The only institution in the city devoted exclusively to photography, Cleveland Print Room adds immense energy and excitement to our art scene – and they know how to party,” says Honorary Chair Barbara Tannenbaum. “The Foto Brunch not only helps support an important Cleveland institution, but offers a fun and relaxing way to spend your Sunday."
Brunch is $25 per person. Special Patron packages are available for $50, and include a Cleveland Print Room t-shirt and coffee mug. All proceeds benefit the Cleveland Print Room. Tickets are available at Clevelandprintroom.brownpapertickets.com, or in person at the Cleveland Print Room.
