Cleveland Institute of Art goes out of town also . . .

Another Cleveland institution is looking far and abroad for architects instead of looking down the street.

CIA has a short-list of MVRDV, Krueck + Sexton, Scogin Elam, and Studios Architecture.

Again, I do not deny the impressive portfolios and talent of the shortlisted architects. But I do again highlight the hypocrisy of Cleveland's elite telling us to "Believe in Cleveland," as they go shopping for architects and designers elsewhere.
