Join us for coffee and conversation with University Circle’s best and brightest curators. Over the course of four weeks, you will have the opportunity to sit and chat with different curators from University Circle’s most distinguished institutions. This is your opportunity to discover what curators do, why they do it, how they got their start, and how their research and discoveries impact the museums, your lives and, in some cases, the world.

Cleveland Starts Here®
Eric Rivet, Curator of Collections & Exhibitions
Margaret Roulett, Archives & Special Collections
As the Western Reserve Historical Society celebrates its 150th anniversary, it is creating a dynamic, new exhibition experience called Cleveland Starts Here® presented by the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation – a permanent core exhibit and digital portal that explores the rich and diverse history of Cleveland and Northeast Ohio. The trusted steward of the region’s history since 1867, the Western Reserve Historical Society is responsible to the city and region to use its collections and resources to educate and enlighten – to provide historical context that informs today’s conversations and the critical decisions that impact society. Join Eric Rivet and Margaret Roulett to discuss Cleveland, its history, and the objects that were selected to represent that history in Cleveland Starts Here®, which opens at the Cleveland History Center in November 2017.
