Mikel Mahoney and Jean Brandt, First Tremont Art Walk Flier (Expanded Detail), February 1992
Tremont Vanguards
The transformation of Tremont has been swift and profound. But before there were high-rises, there were artists – a bold creative class who saw the potential in the aging west side neighborhood.

On Wednesday, June 15th, the Artists Archives will host Tremont Vanguards, a virtual program which examines the role of the artists and innovators who transformed the crumbling Tremont neighborhood into the thriving creative community of today. Led by Mindy Tousley, former co-director of City Artists at Work, the moderated conversation will include Dr. Theresa Boyd, owner of Doubting Thomas Gallery, and foundational Tremont artists Jeff Chiplis, Terry Durst, and Angelica Pozo.

During the 90s, Tremont became a creative laboratory where many members of Cleveland’s experimental art scene cut their teeth. Among their ranks were Steven B. Smith & Mother Dwarf, Jeff Chiplis, Terry Durst, Bruce Edwards, Frank Green, Dave Madigan, Mikel Mahoney, Jee Sun Park, Angelica Pozo, Tony Serna, Dan Tranberg, Douglas Max Utter, Laila Voss, Beth Wolfe, and later Dana Depew.

This 45-minute conversation will explore their artistic contributions and trace the area’s meteoric rise, as well as examine the double-edged sword of the gentrification that followed.
