Two floors of exhibits and neither was worthy of what we consider contemporary art.... One was a political statement of hatred and the other was photos of people with physical deformities (one leg shorter than the other, spin curvature, etc...). This is not what we...More

There is a reason contemporary art lovers from New York and England seem to enjoy this MOCA museum while some locals with passe tastes may not: Outside, it's a striking image in the growing, trendy Uptown / University Circle area of Cleveland -- not for...More
