How the Lincoln Park Tile Mural was Made

by Meg Hadzinsky

A new, public mural adorns the formerly blank, cement wall along the south side of Tremont’s Lincoln Park Gazebo.  The public mural project is the work of Angelica Pozo, a resident of Tremont as well as the founder of Tremont Artist In Residence program, also known as Tremont AIR.  We caught up with Pozo during the final public tile decorating session, held at the iconic Literary Café, to find out how she involved and reflected so much of the Tremont community in this piece of public history, now on display.

PRISM is a short film holding open auditions in Tremont.  “We are interested in getting a wide variety of ages and ethnicities for these roles, particularly Black and Asian actors,” says director, writer, and producer Joe Kowalski, “This film is currently not paid, but we will supply food, IMDb credit, and free tickets to the Cedar Lee premiere later this year. Also, Henry Winkler has a cameo, so here’s your opportunity to be one degree away from him!”

PRISM is the latest venture from local Cleveland Filmmaker Joe Kowalski (Billie Bob Joe, One Day: A Musical, PogieJoe Productions). It is expected to be around 30 minutes long, and is ready to start on production as soon as they find the perfect cast.

Dark Silver II: 12X at Mastroianni Photography and Arts Opens on March 13

Dark Silver II 12X

 

by Steve Mastroianni

Dark Silver II: 12X is the second installment in the new series devoted to portraits made with traditional black & white film and processed in the darkroom. For the new set of portraits, a series of parameters were created to provide a framework for the portraits. Photographs were made in the studio with a twin lens reflex (TLR) medium format camera, under a similar lighting scheme utilizing continuous hot lights and a seamless backdrop, and each subject was limited to one roll of film (12 exposures). Then, an enlarged proof sheet was created in the darkroom from each roll of film, and each proof sheet is displayed as part of an installment of the entire set of portraits. As a result, each and every shot taken of each subject can be seen; nothing was edited out. Continue reading
