City Stages, the museum’s free acclaimed summer concerts featuring the best in global music, has returned. These block parties will take place in front of Transformer Station, the museum’s sister contemporary art museum, on Wednesdays, August 3 and 10, at 7:30 p.m.
Before or during the concerts, attendees are encouraged to visit Transformer Station, one of 30 venues across Cleveland, Oberlin and Akron participating in the 2022 edition of FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art through October 2. Titled Oh, Gods of Dust and Rainbows, the free exhibition explores art as an agent of transformation, a mode of healing and a therapeutic process. Staff at the PNC Exhibition Hub at Transformer Station will help visitors plan their journeys through 30 sites, where they will encounter the work of more than 100 contemporary artists.
Transformer Station is located at 1460 W. 29th St. (at the corner of Church Avenue), Cleveland, OH 44113. Normal hours are Wednesday to Sunday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., but Transformer Station will remain open until 9 p.m. during City Stages. For more information, visit transformerstation.org.
