Lukas is visiting CIA for a collaborative project with Industrial Design Professor Doug Paige to develop new models for a sustainable Cuyahoga River as part of Cleveland Foundation’s Creative Fusion: Waterways to Waterways Edition commemorating the 50th anniversary of the June 1969 Cuyahoga River fire and the environmental movement it inspired. Creative Fusion: Waterways to Waterways will bring together a group of six international and six local artists to focus on projects that connect regenerative efforts for the Cuyahoga River to waterways around the world.
