TRAVEL & PARKING
The Eastbound Shoreway (Rt. 2) will be closed from 6:30pm-10:30pm on September 9, due to a large cycling event. There is also other construction happening on the Shoreway and some exits may be closed. We recommend freeway commuters use I-90.
In general, please plan plenty of time for travel, as we are expecting higher than normal traffic in our neighborhood. As parking space is extremely limited, we encourage you to take advantage of the complimentary valet parking beginning at 6:30pm.
In addition, there will be a drop-off location for Uber and Lyft at the eastern end of our campus on Detroit Ave.

2017 Pan Award Honoree
This year we are delighted to honor Andrew Watterson with the 2017 PAN Award, in celebration of his contributions to the arts, environmental sustainability and community development.
Andrew has served on the board of CPT since 2009 and also serves on the Gordon Square Arts District board. Andrew is Senior Vice President and Head of Sustainability for KeyBank, where he uses his environmental and organizational change expertise to lead the bank in the development and execution of a sustainability strategy.
Andrew has also served on the boards of the Cleveland International Film Festival and the GreenCity Blue Lake Institute at the Cleveland Natural History Museum. He lived for 10 years in Gordon Square Arts District, most recently moving with his husband Randy Lanoue to the Edgewater Park neighborhood. His love for this community runs deep, and we are thrilled to honor him.
Read more about our honoree here.
“CPT helps build compassion in communities through public conversations through the arts… [Pandemonium] actually doesn’t feel like a fundraiser, because there’s no fundraising that goes on at the event. Really it’s the best party of the year… it’s one of those events where there’s simply great dancing, excellent theatre, celebrity chefs from all around Cleveland and an open bar. So it’s truly a lot of fun.”
-Andrew Watterson, 2017 Pan Award Honoree; Senior Vice President and Head of Sustainability at KeyBank
