Approved by voters in 2006, Cuyahoga Arts and Culture (CAC) is one of the largest local public sector funders of arts and culture in the United States. CAC needed a website that allowed them to quickly and effectively communicate with grant applicants, awardees, and the general public.

Each page of the CAC site features an animated Flash header that slowly and randomly dissolves between various photographs, paintings, prints, maps, and other documents showcasing the diversity of arts and culture in Cuyahoga County. PavlishGroup reached out to over a dozen local photographers, artists and institutions to contribute images for this header. Not a single "stock photo" was employed – all images are authentically "home grown" as so to remain true to the spirit of CAC's mission.

Interactive Presention: University Hospitals

University Hospitals

multimedia production

University Hospitals' Five Star Sensation is a biennial charity event which in 2005 raised $1.3 million for Ireland Cancer Center. The fundraiser brings over 60 of the world's top chefs including Wolfgang Puck, Kerry Heffernan and Luciano Pellegrini to Cleveland where they prepare a gourmet dinner for over 1,500 donors.

The event's organizers desired a multimedia presentation celebrating the fundraiser and showcasing the chefs' activities during their three-day stay in Cleveland. The presentation was to be screened at a VIP after-party only hours after the main event ended — leaving very little time for production.

PavlishGroup's photographers accompanied the chefs around town, documenting private batting practice at Jacob's Field, an exclusive reception at the home of University Hospital's CEO, and the main dinner event itself. As the dinner ended, PavlishGroup's team rushed to the after-party location, programming and editing the multimedia presentation on laptops while still en route. Within minutes of arriving, PavlishGroup had computer and video equipment deployed and the final presentation running as guests streamed in.

The presentation was a smash hit - crowds gathered around the flat-panel displays cheering themselves in action only hours before.
