Nick Cave’s artwork has been on display for months at the Akron Art Museum, but over the weekend the artist’s wearable sculptures came to life. Performers from across the region donned the so-called sound suits made up of synthetic raffia fibers for a unique performance that mixes visual art, dance and music.

The first phase of construction on Howe  Avenue in Cuyahoga Falls starts Monday and businesses are preparing for a financial impact.

The project will replace the road near a popular business district that includes stores in Chapel Hill Plaza.

Only the eastbound lane will be closed, which means drivers can take an alternate route or use the frontage streets behind the businesses.

On this week’s State of the Arts we head to Cedar Point in Sandusky to ride Steel Vengeance, a new coaster that offers the best of both worlds.
