Parade the Circle 2018: A Photo Story
I moved into a renovated Victorian house on Ashbury avenue in Cleveland at the peak of winter this year. Through my attic room window I would survey the pristine white landscape and yearn for summer. After dragging its feet through March and much of April, spring finally arrived.
With it came Parade the Circle, an annual event celebrating artmaking in the community. I walked to the tent where the artists were preparing for the parade almost everyday a week before the event. It was cathartic to watch the various artistic and visual elements come together. “University Circle is beautiful in spring and summer,” my uncle who has been living in Cleveland for more than two decades tells me frequently. I eagerly look forward to summer.
