Cleveland's Endearing Symbol: 52 Stories of the Terminal Tower

Friday March 9th - Saturday, April 21st, 2018

Generations of Clevelanders have looked to the spire of the Terminal Tower as a point of reference and as a beloved Cleveland icon. Friday, March 9th marks the opening of a new exhibition devoted to this landmark, titled "Cleveland's Endearing Symbol: 52 Stories of the Terminal Tower". Curated and designed by long-time Library staffers and originators of our Cleveland Memory Project Bill Barrow and Donna Stewart, the exhibit draws heavily on the collections at the Michael Schwartz Library and also includes material from many generous community partners. The exhibition is an affectionate and informative look at the role of the tower in the life of the city and includes hundreds of items: historical photos, artworks, film, media, ephemera, and kitsch. And a falcon, of course!

Join us for the opening reception and gallery conversation on Friday, March 9 at 4 pm, when Bill Barrow and Donna Stewart will highlight a few of the Tower's "52 stories".

Running from March 9th through April 21st at The Galleries at CSU at East 13th and Euclid Avenue, next to IdeaStream.

Read Steven Litt's review of the exhibition that appeared in the March 18th issue of the Plain Dealer.
