• New Cleveland Downtown Hilton Convention Center COMMISSION 2016

    I am very excited to announce that my work will be on permanent display at the new Cleveland Downtown Hilton Convention Center Hotel in June of 2016. The corporate commission includes four 4x6' paintings that will be located on the fifth floor in the lobby space. The Kalisher design group was wonderful to work with on this project. I am looking forward to seeing all of the artwork that they have chosen for this incredible project. I am proud to be a part of the great rebirth of our beautiful city. Cleveland does rock!
