The Transformer Station is the newest hub for contemporary art and culture on Cleveland’s near West Side.  We strive to make our space a place for everyone to connect with contemporary art, especially the photographic art of today!  In other words, the photos and images being created by world class artists right now!   

We love being at the forefront of discussions about these often experimental images and we think everyone should join the conversation because we live in a world of images all the time: on line, in print, on our phones!  Find out how visual communication, or visual literacy, works and why it matters to you and your kids.

SnapLab is made possible by a generous grant provided by the
Char and Chuck Fowler Family Foundation and will culminate it’s first year in a celebration for all program alumni next January, 2016.
