Little Italy Townhomes Display Deming Sculpture

Cleveland Institute of Art former president David Deming has partnered with 27 Coltman luxury townhomes, creating a dramatic sculpture in Little Italy.

Little Italy Townhomes Display Deming Sculpture

Cleveland Institute of Art former president David L. Deming ’67 has partnered with 27 Coltman luxury townhomes to create a dramatic sculpture to define the development’s “Urban Prairie” landscape.

Located in the Little Italy neighborhood of Cleveland, not far from the Institute’s Joseph McCullough Center, 27 Coltman is surrounded by what it calls an “Urban Prairie” - a fully sustainable landscape of indigenous plants that requires no irrigation and minimizes water runoff.

The development wanted a centerpiece for the “Prairie,” so standing tall amid the perennials and foliage is a one-of-a-kind sculpture by Deming, who recently retired from his 12-year tenure as CIA’s president. Pieces of Deming’s work are already on display at several University Circle institutions, including CIA and Case Western Reserve University.

A cocktail reception and official dedication for Deming’s sculpture, Rocker, will be hosted at 27 Coltman on Thursday, August 5 from 6 to 9pm. RSVP here to attend. For more information, contact Carolyn Karas at carolyn@27coltman.com or 330.703.1922.
