This Summer Cleveland will play host to what promises to be the most contentious Republican National Convention in more than a century.
Media credentials alone, have already surpassed all records. And reservations in yet uncompleted hotels, are already sold out.
But Cleveland has a problem. The city’s national perception is mired in a brutally-accurate acknowledgement of its’ place, among cities ‘least likely’ to have a vacationers appeal.
Cleveland does have a scant few things which are truly unique. One, is their current cultural resource, in fine artist, Marc Breed.
On July 16th at 9PM, on the newly-refurbished mall, directly in front of Terminal Tower/Horseshoe Casino, a public performance piece will take place, to an estimated crowd of some 3,500 people.
“Not the easiest artist to anticipate, we can only assume, that whatever happens, people will discuss this event for decades to come.” –Crain's Business News
Reserve your spot for this most secretive endeavor created by an artist who works across the bounds of artistic media. And has absolutely fewer boundaries yet, in what he feels appropriate.
Should you have any unique artistic qualifications, be able to keep this project a sworn secret, be willing to work for peanuts, and tolerate a dictitorial task-master; you may forward a bio [with media]. You can be assured, that on your deathbed, this particular evening will be one of very few memories etched clearly in your minds.
