ZeroLandfill Teacher Workshops
ZertoLandfill has partnered with the Education Service Center of Cuyahoga County (Ohio)
to present a two part workshop, Making Art from Recycled Materials. The workshop
focuses on book arts. On March 22, artist and educator, Chris Zielski, will be presenting
book projects using wallcovering, paint samples and wood and tile. On April 17,
artist Christine Mauersberger, will be expanding the definition of books using
wallcovering and fabric. These are hands on workshops. Each participant will have time
to create the presented book projects and explore and experiment with materials on
Educators can take the book projects back their classrooms and incorporate into a range
of learning activities. One can be a science log, another a creative writing book, world
history and cultural studies notes can fill the third and the fourth can incorporate math
concepts. Each tells the story of reuse, seeing materials in a new light and expanding the
definition of book. Students will find discovery in looking at what was once considered
waste in a new way.
Summer sessions are being planned for 2012.
Allen Memorial Art Museum Update (Oberlin, OH)
For more information, please contact Jason Trimmer, Curator of Education, at
email@example.com, or by phone (440) 775-8671.
Guided Tours for K-12 Student Groups:
Interactive tours are led by the museum’s student docents and Education Department staff. All
Educational tours utilize VTS (Visual Thinking Strategies) which build critical thinking and visual
literacy skills through close examination and discussion of original works of art. This technique
focuses on students' own discoveries and interpretations of works of art, rather than the simple
dissemination of dates and facts. Docents will help your students to explore, discover and enjoy
art in the AMAM’s extensive collection. Working with small groups in the galleries, the docents
encourage discussion about the art, artists and cultures represented in the collections and
special exhibitions. In addition, each tour can be designed to complement your current unit or
Guided tours meet and work within the Visual Art Academic Content Standards established by
the State Board of Education of Ohio ("Historical, Cultural, and Social Contexts," "Creative
Expression and Communication," "Analyzing and Responding," "Valuing the Arts/Aesthetic
Expression," and "Connections, Relationships, and Applications.")
How to Schedule a Tour:
A minimum of two weeks advance notice is required to schedule a tour.
Tours are usually 45 minutes to 1 hour long, depending on the age group.
There is no charge for tours.
Classroom Resource Sheets
Thanks to the generous support of the Ohio Arts Council, the AMAM has developed classroom
resource sheets based on twenty works from the museum’s permanent art collection. For every
work, you will find a visual analysis, background on the work’s function, its cultural and
historical importance, an artist biography, and a list of possible vocabulary words. Additionally,
each resource sheet lists the Ohio Academic Content Standards and their K-12 Benchmarks met
by the study of each work and its related classroom activities. We have also developed ideas for
curriculum connections in each of the major subject areas. It is our hope not only that some of
these connections might be used in your classroom, but also that they are used as a ‘jumping
off point’ for the creative integration of works from our collection into your lesson plans. Sheets
are available online under the “education” tab.

The Fighting Heart of Johnny Kilbane: Remembering Cleveland’s Featherweight Champion
100 Years Later
Main Library, Louis Stokes Wing – Lower Lobby
March 15 – April 30
West Park Branch
May 7 – 31
On February 22, 1912, Clevelander Johnny Kilbane entered the realm of sports legends when he
defeated Abe Attell in a 20-round fight, winning for himself–and Cleveland–the world
featherweight boxing championship, a title he held until 1923. In his day, Kilbane’s name was
known throughout the U.S. and around the world, perhaps more so than that of any other
Clevelander’s. Fighter, family man and public servant, Kilbane led an exceptional life. But his
journey in some ways followed the path of many other Irish American Clevelanders of the time:
born in the Angle–wedged between Detroit, West 25th Street and the Cuyahoga River–he lived
at West 74th and Herman at the time of his title fight and ended his days in West Park. The
legacy of “West Side’s Pride” is our community pride.
The Lockwood Thompson Dialogues Presents
An Exhibit of Photographs by Penny De Los Santos: Food Travels
Fine Arts & Special Collections Department
Main Library – Main Building, Third Floor
March - June, 2012
Penny De Los Santos began photographing as a way to understand her own diverse cultural
background and identity. Her recent evolution into food photography has allowed her to
explore and celebrate culture, history and community through the camera lens. The exhibit will
feature her Food Travels series. She is an award-winning internationally published
photographer whose work has appeared in Saveur Magazine and National Geographic.
Travel Back in Time with the George Ketteringham Photograph Collection
Main Library, Main Building Lobby
Now through May 30, 2012
A selection of George Ketteringham’s iconic images of Cleveland from the early 1900s is
currently on view. Travel back in time to see the fashions of the day and to compare well-
known Cleveland locations then and now. A graduate of old West High School, George
Ketteringham (1876-1954) was an expert at making and repairing the surveying equipment
required for the precise planning and positioning of Cleveland-area construction projects. It was
through his travels to construction sites throughout the city that George Ketteringham
developed an interest in the buildings and locations that would become the focus of his
photography. Viewing his subjects with the precise eye of the surveyor, Ketteringham captured
images of amazing clarity, strong composition, and atmosphere. The images in the exhibit are
drawn from the larger George Ketteringham Collection that is available for viewing through the
Cleveland Public Library Digital Gallery.

DAVE COLE: The Music Box
March 30th - May 19th, 2012
Dave Cole, an artist from Providence, Rhode Island and graduate of Brown University, and Ken
Taylor, president of Ohio CAT, share the same sandbox fascination in large road construction
equipment. Add Reinberger Galleries director Bruce Checefsky, and the results are a smooth
drum vibrator soil compactor, Model CS-553, converted into an actual musical box complete
with oversized tuning pins playing the Star Spangled Banner. Cole's "Music Box" is both
performance and sculpture. CIA commissioned the unique work from this multi-talented artist
of Americana treasures; how they get the massive equipment through the doors of the gallery
is worth the trip to University Circle alone.
BARBARA STANCZAK: Form and Answer
March 30th - May 19th, 2012
Barbara Stanczak's sculpture and wall reliefs take on the feel of the natural elements from
which they are made - Italian Translucent Alabaster, Butternut wood, gold leaf and copper, to
name a few. The skill involved is impressive with steadfast impact on the visceral and cerebral.
Even her most ingenious permutations of shapes blur the line between abstract and figural,
reminding us that ocular experiences can be physical too. With meticulous attention to detail,
Stanczak's formal abstraction captures complexities and contradictions in eye and hand,
smoothing the surface of rough stone, for example, to reveal its fluid origins.
