Fences, Sausages, and an Ark Hive: Around Cleveland’s Front International Triennial, Part 2

To see the fantastic Let It Bee Ark Hive, which is being exhibited at the triennial by Julie Ezelle Patton, who’s based in the city’s historic Glenville neighborhood, a tour must be arranged. Don’t let that deter you. You’ll want to see how Ezelle Patton has paid homage to her mother, the artist Virgie Ezelle Patton, through a series of rooms in the building where she once lived that combine and collage Virgie and Julie’s work, as well as their belongings. It’s a meditation on the city’s rich artistic history, which is still largely unknown to people outside the Rust Belt region.
