Sketch Outing NBA Finals

Join us Saturday, June 6th, 2015 from 10am-Noon at the Q Arena to sketch how the arena will be decked out for the NBA Finals.
We will meet at the overhang pictured above (right under the giant "C") at the intersection of Ontaria, Prospect, and Huron.  We will hold this sketch outing in the event of a little rain, as we can sketch from under the overhang.  In the event of major rain, please watch us on Facebook or on our blog to see what the plan will be. 

Eight years ago, I had wanted to sketch the NBA Finals displays/decorations, but I lost track of time, and before I knew it, it was over.  I missed out.  Don't miss out this time around.  Come and sketch with us, on June 6th.

Keep in mind, this is a Saturday, and it is earlier in the day than normal.  We're not going to sketch on the Sunday, as parking will probably be very expensive due to the Cavs game that night.  And, we're going earlier on Sunday to avoid parking issues that will come closer to the Indians' game. 

There should be a lot of available parking within a few blocks of the arena, and of course, RTA is always an option, as this is only a couple of blocks from Public Square.  Paid parking garages will be available as well, including Tower City's and the casino's.

Please feel free to post a comment with any questions here or post a question on our Facebook page.  Not in our Facebook group?  Feel free to join!  We're at "Urban Sketchers Cleveland" on Facebook.

Have a great day, looking forward to seeing you!

MOCA - Museum of Contemporary Art

Postcards from MOCA - Museum of Contemporary Art, a mirrored jewel in Cleveland's crown designed by Farshid Moussavi. It rises 60 feet from a hexagonal base to a square top, certainly a challenge to sketch. More about MOCA here
