Kokoon Klub Exhibit

Another serendipitous moment: during our mini-sketchcrawl this weekend at the Cleveland Public Library, we stumbled across a fascinating exhibit that was coming down the next day. One case was already emptied but plenty of display pieces were left to dazzle us.

The exhibit “Out of the Kokoon: Cleveland’s Festival of Modern Art and Dance, 1911-1938” commemorated the 100th anniversary of the Kokoon Klub, formed by a group of well-known lithograph artists in Cleveland. I sketched one of the large posters produced by the Cleveland lithograph companies.

Who knew Cleveland was the hub of lithograph artists in the 30s? For more on the exhibit, click here.
