you should do a stint on the peter b. lewis building designed by frank gehry on euclid ave. frank gehry also designed the Guggenheim Museum in new york.

another thought is to do a stint on the sweetest sweedish sculpturists EVER named claes oldenburg and coosje van bruggen, who are responsible for the FREE stamp in willard park. besides having the most awesome names EVER, they have done all sorts of sculptures, mainly oversized daily household items, and placed them around the world, and cleveland is home to one of them... http://www.oldenburgvanbruggen.com/

Don't mind my partner. He thinks he's part Finnish, and takes his Scandinavian spelling very seriously.
