January is all cold and snowy and not known for the great cultural festivals I love-those dont start til the middle of May. But that doesnt mean there isnt some events for those who want to experience different cultures, share their own, and generally socialize with other folks
On January 10th from 7-9 at the Turkish Cultural Center on[masked] Mdison in Lakewood there is a Free Coffee Night. From their website-TASO Cleveland is once again organizing the traditional monthly Turkish Coffee Nights and you are invited. Coffee night is a monthly gathering in a nice and warm environment with a presentation, fun activities, conversation and delicious Turkish food. The program starts with a presentation. Every month there are various topics. This months topic is Ebru: Turkish Art of Water Marbling. We love to see new faces! Delicious Turkish food and Turkish tea follow the presentation. Attendance is absolutely FREE! The aim of our program is to promote diversity and encourage men and women from different cultures to gather and have a delightful time.

The Maltz Museum's exhibit on the Dreyfuss Affair has proven so popular it has been held over to February 9th.
And not only did the Cleveland Museum of Art open their west wing last week-meaning the Chinese, Indian, Himalayan, and Southeast Asian Collection are now out they also have small exhibits on Silks from Islamic Lands, Congo Sculptures, and Netherlands Miniatures [masked])
The excellent exhibit of the Art of Sicily ends Sunday if you havent seen it.
