Cleveland Prints

In addition to his poetry and publishing, levy also produced prints and paintings. The title of each in this series of block prints makes reference to a specific Cleveland placename -- Edgewater Park, the Van Aken rapid station, the Cultural Gardens -- as if levy was trying to embed the very essence of the city into these prints. From these works we get a sense of the city through levy’s eyes, and his love/hate relationship with it. You can see the front cover to the series here, in which levy directly inked and printed from a condom! The rest are on view as a part of How to Remain Human now on view at MOCA.
