CONVERGE Venue Statement:
Judson Manor is a vibrant senior living community within University Circle. As part of the Judson Smart Living group of three campuses which “Bring Community to Life”, Judson Manor occupies a long and storied place in the cultural/artistic/educational nexus of the Cleveland that is University Circle. Since its construction in 1923 as the Wade Park Manor Hotel, this Georgian Revival architectural Grande dame has long been a magnet for artists, musicians, poets, and dreamers.
Now as a senior residential community it has an internationally recognized Artist-In Residence program with students from the Cleveland Institute of Music and the Cleveland Institute of Art, whereby talented young artists live for free with audiences of life-long patrons of the arts. The new South Concourse Gallery is just an expansion of keeping the arts central to Manor residents’ lives. Judson Manor is thrilled with its year-round collaboration with The Artist Archive of the Western Reserve and proud to partner for CONVERGE, an extraordinary celebration of the work, stories, and lives of LGBTQ+ artists.
