  4. Imagine a City...

    Imagine a city where every home had on it's front lawn a piece of sculpture or an art installation.

    Imagine a city where each and every business invited artists to exhibit their work to the company's patrons.

    Imagine a city where instead of gifting clothing, electronics, chocolate, or cash, a work of art was given, and appreciated.

    Imagine a city where each and every home housed and preserved an art collection. Where insecurities over self-interests were dispensed with, and collections reflected those varied tastes.

    Imagine a city where glass, pottery, painting, photography. fibers, basketry, and even graffiti were embraced. Where the artists themselves were looked upon as a treasured resource. No matter their perspective.

    Imagine a city where any construction project involved multiple artists, in its' execution.

    Imagine a city which preserved its' creative heritage and embraced it.

    Imagine a city which understood, that capturing a slice of life had merit. But to alter a communities perspective to embrace all thought and belief, strengthened it, not weakened it.

    Imagine a city which led the World in cultural munificence which would then reap the reward of becoming a global mecca.

    Imagine a city which could step outside of what others were doing could walk the path of its' own making.

    Imagine a city where meetings to enact such change, needn't take place. Rather a spontaneous change came from its' citizenry itself.

    Imagine a city which artists flocked to; enabling them to create without fear of censorship or derision.

    Imagine a city not dependent upon their museums or art schools for their lead in any discussions of artistic merit, but rather the career artists themselves.

    I have imagined this city since childhood, as have most of my colleagues. Instead we've swum through muck, hoping such change would miraculously happen without distracting us from our labors. Or moved to the closest metropolis which appeared poised to take the plunge.

    Cleveland, like most cities, while not a blank canvas; is one, where the image it sports has faded beyond restoration. The time to paint over it has come. Shiny new unaesthetic buildings, are simply masking the rot.

    Marc Breed, Fine Artist

    "In the distant future, when America is a mere shadow of itself, who historically, shall be remembered? In sports, an argument can be made for Ruth, Chamberlain, Gretzky, Ali, et al. In Art, there is but one name, Breed."

    -Smithsonian Magazine


  6. What would you do? I have a 150-I.Q. [Mensa long test, Secretary of my college Mensa chapter], and serious artistic skillsets across a variety of mediums [multiple awards bestowed internationally], severe ADHD, and the mind-set of Jesse James [my adoptive parents screwed me up good].
    This then, is but a microscopically small sample of that which I've done (within the last say, twenty years now : ing-in-cleveland-just-half-naked-girls!
    [paid actor in one, video'ed three @ $5,000. A pop. Note: I will NEVER give a paid job my best effort. I am a Fine Artist] [I LOVED that tail, and the cops targeted me for it. Couldn't have that.] And yeah. I make no bones about my morals being for sale. It's all bullshit anyway. We're like those birds who think our candy-wrappers aid in their mating ritual. [CMA allowed this first ad. It get's where I, as one of their "100 Northeast Ohio Art Bios" am coming from artistically. And big-money donors called in inquiry!]
    If you search: Cygny Awards (standings), Creative Capital Awards (standings), Running of the Inmates (local flyer, #5:5, and caused an enduring dialog among our African-American majority population), numerous adult entertainment photo-shoots. I introduced five hundred of you, to Claudia Marie. And yes the rumor is true. The cops let me slide, giving a guy a painting for money I got caught scamming him for. Cavs finals tickets? Really! My art in the ad didn't tip you off, that the remainder was all negative space. I am trying to teach the public on how, exactly, you get along with an artist. And I'm protected by the Museum. And Lakewood had my back. Outstanding community. First Amendment is my law, bitches.
    The Breed Egg (glass art), and Asian Face (painting) are my two very-well done pieces that I've given away free. 'Your grandkids educations, assured'). Sold: Fetish Tallith, ($6,000.) And missed Art Basel -Miami, damn it!! There's a lot more. You do the work finding it all.

  10. Hi Matthew,
    I have an e-mail from you with a 'no reply' address asking me to get in touch to prove my credentials as a fine art photographer. I wonder how I can respond when that address will not get through? The 'fine art' aspect of my photography is on a dedicated art nude website which is not listed on LinkedIn. Here is the URL
    Hopefully that will prove my credibility. I am eager and willing to participate in discussions and image sharing.
