LGBT Community Center Art Installation

The new LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland, located in the Gordon Square Arts District on Cleveland’s west side, opened on June 14 and I’m so proud to have my art installed in this beautiful building designed by David Thal of WMF Architects. The work titled “Fifty Three Rhombuses” at 118″ x 56″ is printed on a composite aluminum panel and shaped by CNC router.

With spaces and programs to serve the LGBT community in a variety of ways, the building is a safe and open beacon in the community. I want to thank Phyllis Harris (Executive Director LGBT Community Center Cleveland), Mindy Tousley (Executive Director Artists Archives of the Western Reserve), David Thal (Architect), and the late David Ream for making it possible to come to life.

Fifty Nine Rhombuses

A Rhombus is a parallelogram with opposite equal acute angles, opposite equal obtuse angles, and four equal sides. A baseball diamond is a rhombus.

In this work, there are a total of 59 rhombuses. Each rhombus is defined by 6 triangles broken into 2 equilateral triangles plus 4 Isosceles triangles.
