by Henry Adams

In this period Cleveland was a powerhouse of painting, sculpture, ceramics, poster design, fashion design, and industrial design; established a major art school and art museum; held an annual May Show of regional art; held a free-spirited annual arts festival, the Kokoon Club ball; and was the home base of Henry Luce's publishing empire, and the home of Fortune, Life, and Time Magazine. The book is based upon an exhibit, and it spotlights the achievement of Cleveland's most remarkable artists from this period, some internationally famous, some still relatively little known, including August Biehle, Margaret Bourke-White, Charles Burchfield, Clarence Carter, Clara Deike, Carl Frederick Gaertner, Raphael Gleitsman, Joseph Jicha, Max Kalish, Henry Keller, William Lescaze (artist and architect), Roy Lichtenstein, James Harley Minter, Elmer Ladislaw Novotny, Hugo Robus, Charles Sallee, Don Schreckengost, Viktor Schreckengost, Huey Lee Smith, William Sommer, Rolf Stoll, Paul Travis, Abel Warshawsky, and Frank Wilcox.
