CLEVELAND - An explosion of creativity and artistic expression appeared in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood on Cleveland's near west side Saturday afternoon.
Weapons of Mass Creation Fest
(WMCF) founder Jeff Finley's third annual art, design and music event is a weekend-long festival will feature more than 30 bands, 20 speakers and 20 designers at venues around West 54th Street and Detroit Avenue.
But WMCF is just part of the arts celebration taking place throughout the Gordon Square Arts District this weekend.
Saturday is also the third annual Discover Gordon Square Arts District Day
(DGSADD) - a gathering of the community and art lovers that stretches from West 54th through the center of Gordon Square, at West 65th and Detroit, to the West 78th Street Studios artisan complex just north off of Lake Avenue.
The Gordon Square event is also tied in with Saturday's noontime 23rd annual Parade the Circle
(PTC) celebration taking place at University Circle on Cleveland's east side. In fact, there is free Lolly the Trolley service between the two parties.
According to Gordon Square Arts District Executive Director Joy Roller, while WMCF will focus on music, design and entrepreneurship, DGSADD is more oriented toward performance, culinary and fine arts.
