University of Akron's Art Bomb Brigade to unveil its second mural at Chill
The Art Bomb Brigade, a community arts program run by the University of Akron's Myer's School of Art, will unveil its second mural at Chill, Akron's gourmet ice cream shop. AKRON, Ohio -- The University of Akron's Art Bomb Brigade is putting the finishing touches on an ultra contemporary mural at Chill, Akron's new gourmet ice cream shop. The work will be unveiled Sunday, Sept. 11, at 11 a.m. during the Akron Farm and Flea Market at 51 East Market and Maiden Lane in Akron. The market runs 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event features music by local musicians ZACH and the Fourons. Local food, fare and craft vendors will also be available. The Chill mural is being painted by university alumni artists Rosa Maille, Matt Miller, David Pluck, Leah Prischak, Francisca Ugalde and Ryan Weiss. The artists are working with the illustrator and skateboarder, Jay Croft, an Akron native. Croft is a longtime zine creator, blogger, painter and designer, as well as the visual merchandiser for VANS "OFF THE WALL" shoes. "Art Bomb works to bring together Akronites, teachers, artist, and community organizations to create positive change in our city," said Art Bomb director and university associate professor of art education, Elisa Gargarella, in a news release. "Art Bomb serves as a model to the region for how public art can transform communities into more sustainable, more creative, more economically rich and more culturally engaged places to live and work." Art Bomb is a community arts program run by the university's Myers School of Art. The group was awarded a 2016 Knight Arts Challenge to impact the community through murals created by art students, university alumni and local artists. Art Bomb's first major mural was created at the Downtown Akron Laundromat on South Main Street this past summer.

Twelve Literary and Performative Arts Incubator brings innovative events, after school programs to Cleveland
Cleveland's new Twelve Literary and Performative Arts Incubator is redefining the concept of audience participation this weekend. CLEVELAND, Ohio - Cleveland's new Twelve Literary and Performative Arts Incubator is redefining the concept of audience participation this weekend. On Friday, the community arts space will host a show by collage artist Dakarai Akil at 8 p.m. In conjunction with the show, Twelve Executive Artistic Director Daniel Gray-Kontar has issued a "live call for submissions" to Cleveland writers to respond in real-time to Akil's work. At the end of the evening, the writers will submit their work for publication in Dakarai's forthcoming book "GodBody," to be published by Guide to Kulchur Press. Additionally, local hip-hop artists including Candi Fresca,DJ Red-I and Aaron A-Live Snorton will be invited to share their beats to inspire the writers. "This is multi modal and multi-textured and has lots of layers," says Kontar. "It's an innovative process I've never seen before, we're excited to see what happens ... I'm not certain what that will be, but it will be a new intersection of art and text."  A midnight reading will conclude the evening, which is free and open to the public. Opened in May, Twelve Literary and Performative Arts Incubator, 325 E.156th Street,  is one of Cleveland's most innovative community art spaces. The space hosts monthly poetry slam competitions for adults and teens and has produced staged readings by such playwrights as Cleveland Arts Prize winner Mary E. Weems. Twelve is also home to innovative after-school and community programs, such as their open mic after school fellowship program for writers 13 to 19 and their Reverb program, which partners adults who have been incarcerated with teens who have been in the juvenile justice system to produce a record. Twelve Literary and Performative Arts Incubator is currently running a GoFundMe campaign for these and other educational programs. Visit   https://www.gofundme.com/twelveeducation to donate.
