The Cleveland International Film Festival is a non-profit arts organization that started in 1977, and has expanded to an international event featuring movies from the world over. The festival has emphasized diversity in filmmaking, celebrating films that broadcast social justice, environmental justice, underserved areas of the world and empowerment of women, to name a few. The Sculpture Center has joined CIFF this year as a community partner. We encourage viewers to attend "Levitated Mass: The Story of Michael Heizer's Monolithic Sculpture." "Levitated Mass" is sculptor Michael Heizer's project of over 40 years - a 340 ton boulder transported 105 miles in an 11 day journey from the desert to the city of Los Angeles - coming to fruition. His work exemplifies what dedication to art truly means.
More information on "Levitated Mass" can be found here.
"Levitated Mass" will show three screenings:
Wednesday, March 26, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Opening Thurs Jan 16
5:30-8:00 PM Julie Schenkelberg: Present Resonance
Colleen Toledano: Grit
Julie Schenkelberg describes her sculpture as "poetry combined with industrial grit and beauty." Her artwork invokes the power of memory and draws from her history as a set painter for theater. Colleen Toledano addresses her interest with the body as an edifice, much like the steel and wood framework that surrounds her in an urban area. Questioning whether she should or should not have control over her instinct to create a more domestic lifestyle, she takes inspiration from her immediate surroundings to create ceramic mixed-media sculptures.
