Eastside Conversations

Eastside Conversations

Loosely fashioned after the popular City Club Forum, these sessions provide the community with a unique luncheon program once a month, in which contemporary issues are discussed. Led by local university faculty and laypeople, this forum provides participants the opportunity to engage in meaningful questions and conversations.

Wednesday, March 15 | noon-1:30 p.m.


Steven LittArt, Architecture, Urban Design and City Planning Reporter, The Plain Dealer


This lecture will explore the criteria that a critic uses to evaluate everything from small regional gallery exhibits to large scale museum shows, architectural design and regional planning.

Wednesday, April 19 | Noon–1:30 p.m.


Samantha Baskind, Professor of Art History, Cleveland State University


The presentation discusses the large Jewish presence in comics created by Jews, as well as in graphic novels (Spiegelman's Pulitzer prize winning novel Maus among many others). It places the works in question in their social, political and religious context.
