“Fred Bidwell, a collector and philanthropist here, is betting it will, to the tune of $5 million — his money and that of other donors. ‘We’re at the front line of a lot of the changes, conflict and currents in the air today,’ he said. ‘Cleveland is a blue city surrounded by an ocean of red. Artists have really been interested in creating new art within this context.'”
