Exhibits, performances, installations and lectures will occupy more than 120,000 square feet in two warehouses as well as outdoor lakefront space.  Part of Ingenuity’s intention is to change locations, thus energizing often-ignored areas and structures while inspiring creativity at the intersection of arts, science and technology. The festival blurs the lines between art and the city and steps through the boundaries separating artists and innovators from their audience. Join the ingenious revival Fri 9/14 through Sun 9/16 at Cleveland’s lakefront docks 32 and 30. For more information, go to Fest hours are Fri 9/14 @ 5pm – 1am; Sat 9/15 @ noon – 1am; Sun 9/16 @ noon – 6pm.

ONTARIO GOLDOpening Reception: 8-11 PM, Cleveland SGS' Ontario Gold honors the dividing line of Cleveland's down-low and up-high cultures; it is a two-tone collection of images that explore the balance between inspiration and alienation. The exhibit’s namesake, Ontario Street, can be viewed as the epicenter of the city’s rebirth or simply as a street people cross to get to Tower City. To the golden illuminations erected by casino magnates, it stands as a prism that tempers the dreams of the foolhardy and inspires children to strive for excellence. Cleveland SGS is both rare and nonreactive, Ontario Gold is the manifestation of these two most essential attributes. SGS produces video, paintings, installations and signage deeply entwined with the city's pulse.  An after-party follows at Lava Lounge 11 PM - ? AM. William Rupnik Gallery 1117 Euclid Ave. Cleveland, Ohio 44115.
