Denison's Cleveland Hall Sets Pre-Renovation Art Marathon
Posted: November 6, 2006
The Denison University art department will stage another of its Art Marathon events -- this one its last prior to the renovation of Cleveland Hall. Visiting Professor Ryan Roth is hosting this year's event, which will be open from 7 p.m. Friday (Nov. 10) until 7 a.m. on Saturday (Nov. 11) in multiple areas of Cleveland Hall.
Students, faculty and community members are welcome to join the student and faculty artists during the 12-hour creative process. Food and music will help to maintain the energy levels throughout the night.
Cleveland Hall will be closed for major renovations starting in May 2007 and continuing until 2009. Dedicated in 1904 as a men's gymnasium, Cleveland Hall was named to honor several generous Cleveland-area trustees and designed in the Jeffersonian Federal Revival style in brick and stone. Today, it houses studio spaces for painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, photography and a small foundry for metal fabrication.
