Alright, Superman is not from Cleveland, he's from planet Krypton, however the creators of the character are. Writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster were growing up in Cleveland, OH, when in 1930s they created Superman.
One of the fun reminders of that fact, is the permanent exhibit at the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, debuted in 2012. It is located in the baggage area, near door 6.
The exhibit depicts a skyline of Cleveland on the back wall, which serves as a map to key locations in the creators lives. The talk bubbles provide commentary on the relevance of each location.

While in Chicago for business and walking from the hotel to the office, I noticed something rather unusual. A huge Trojan Horse standing on top of the CTA's Chicago Red Line station. Closer look revealed it was a promotion to the new exhibit about ancient Greece at the Field Museum. Very catchy and clever advertising.
The Greeks exhibit is co-presented by The Field Museum and the National Hellenic Museum. It will be on from Nov 25, 2015 to Apr 10, 2016 and promises more than 500 artifacts.

"Lost in Another Space" is a two-person exhibition featuring female artists that I learned about from a co-worker, Shoko Tagaya, who co-curated it. The two artists had completely different styles. Esther Stocker manipulates intuitive and basic geometry into complicated disorientation. Sayaka Maruyama draws on the notion of beauty. The printed on cloth series, called Sakura, incorporated the cherry blossoms with images of a woman creating dreamy portraits.
The exhibit will be open at the Plus 81 Gallery until Nov 15, 2015.

It's perfectly normal to think you're better than everyone else. Simply keep that to yourself.

Stumbled across a new coffee shop, Reunion, on Union St in Williamsburg. Nice place to get coffee and lunch and get some work done. It's a small place with the seating shaped up as a T with tables all around. Something to keep in mind, the windows don't have blinds or curtains and in the afternoon the place is filled with direct sunlight making it hard to see the computer screen. Nicely decorated with its own flare.
