After that cold weather trek to the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood, where several dozen urban hikers learned more interesting facts about the neighborhood and architectural history from our guide, the inestimable Joseph Giuliano, a proud muckety-muck with the Detroit Shoreway Development Corporation, than any person has a right to know, your Urban Hike leaders have decided that our destination will be the Transformer Station on West 29th Street, which recently opened as a New Space for Contemporary Art in Cleveland. We will depart from our usual starting location, Starbucks, on West 6th Street between St. Clair and Superior Avenues on MAY 4 at a different time, 1:00 p.m., because the Transformer Station is not open in the morning. We will be visiting on the closing day of the Inaugural Exhibition, which includes Light of Day, featuring photographs from the collection of Fred and Laura Bidwell, benefactors of the Cleveland Museum of Art, who brought the idea of the Transformer Station to fruition, and Bridging Cleveland, photographs by Vaughn Wascovich, commissioned by the Bidwell Project for the Inaugural Exhibition.

Join us on this excursion to historic Ohio City and this important project in not only Cleveland, but the region.

Afterwards, we will stop in for coffee brewed by a new player in the local coffee scene, Rising Star Coffee Roasters, across the street from the Transformer Station in the old Ohio City Firehouse.
