Living the Dream through Art and Collaboration

Calling Ohioans "Buckeyes" goes back to the 1830's.  The buckeye is seen as a sign of good luck.  Ohio State seems to personify this "myth" of luck, always winning everything, growing at an astronomical rate, leading in education, etc.   Well the Buckeye neighborhood of Cleveland could say just the opposite.  This area once showed … Continue reading Living the Dream through Art and Collaboration
