Northeast Ohio 'Branded' as the Home of the Environmental Art(s) Movement




In a historic re-unification if the Greater Cleveland Community, as part of the Iceality Silver Revelation, North East Ohio Area has been 'branded' as the Home of the Environmental Art(s) Movement by the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) as a 'Cultural Industry', to foster civic identity, cultivate tourism, and brand Ohio Environmental Arts and Culture District in the Bioregion.


The International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) was founded by David and Renate Jakupca in 1987 to meet the compelling needs of ordinary citizens for access to current, balanced, understandable information about complex global issues.When you look around you can see ICEA has been an overwhelming success.

ICEA was organized into three divisions:  Environmental, Humanities, Arts and Culture, this acts as an umbrella organization of affiliated groups  that support related agendas.  ICEA's mission is the Theory of ICEALITY on Environmental Arts, that is to "Assist in understanding of the relationship between Humans and their Environment through Arts and culture  ultimately promoting a sustainable global Culture of Peace between all Living Things (Human, Plant and Animal Kingdoms)"   As the first professional art organization to be solely dedicated to this endeavor, this has made ICEA a leader in the Environmental Arts Movement and a force for socially responsible activity.
ICEA participated in the 1992 EARTH SUMMIT, and in 1993, David and Renate were official UN Observers to the UN Conference on Human Rights in Vienna , Austria. There with the approval of the US delegates, Geraldine Ferraro and President Jimmy Carter, ICEA has been promoting iceality and recycling all major UN World Conferences until they were discontinued in 2007. These recycled conferences and related ICEA exhibits have received international critical acclaim in the environmental arts movement.

As a visionary providing inspiration for others in the sustainable development of Cleveland, David has been officially designated by The City of Cleveland, Earth Island Institute and other major organizations as the "Spiritual Father of the Environmental Art Movement". TIME Magazine nominated them for their Millennium Heroes for the Planet.

The historic ARK in Berea, home of the sustainable global Environmental Arts Movement,  helped inaugurate the green building trend that is now sweeping America.  In 2000, mainly because of their heightened talent to match ability with vision, David and Renate were the ideal avant-guides to help lead the Nation into the next Millennium when they spent six months in Europe at EXPO2000, the World's Fair in Hannover, Germany as Americas Cultural Ambassadors.
Over the years, ICEA has gained a reputation for excellence based upon a unique library of specialized, current information on global importance and a wide range of imaginative programming and collaborations with other organizations to meet the needs of a broad constituency. With affiliates across the globe, the ICEA supports research, information sharing and effective action promoting a sustainable Global Culture of Peace for All Living Things.

Jakupca's Theory on Environmental Arts (ICEALITY*) was enthusiastically embraced by the United Nations by 1992 and was featured in many of their World Conferences;

   1- 1992 Earth Summit on the Environment, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
   2- 1993 World Conference on Human Rights, Vienna, Austria
   3- 1994 World Conference on Population and Development, Cairo, Egypt   
   4- 1995 World Conference on Women, Beijing, China
   5- 1996 Habitat II- UN Conference on Human Settlements, Istanbul, Turkey
   6- 2000 World's Fair, Expo2000, Hannover, Germany
   7- 2001 World Conference on Racism, Durban, South Africa
   8- 2002 World Summit on Sustainability, Johannesburg, South Africa
   9- 2003 World Conference on Peace, Verbania, Italy
   10- 2005 World Conference on Peace, Verbania, Italy
   11- 2007 World Peace Conference, Santa Fe, New Mexico
 

 The result of this major global public promotion at the United Nations level, is that the Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts is now considered as the cornerstone of the modern sustainable global Environmental Art Movement and this concept is now replicated by artists, architects, urban planners and sustainable organizations throughout the World, reflecting a still growing global audience.  However, it must be noted that not all of Jakupca's contemporaries did accepted the new theory at once.

    RESEARCH FINDINGS
     Results for Comparable Artworks and Artist History of David Jakupca


    David Jakupca is an American Philosopher, Ambassador, Artist, Activist and Author. He serves both as an American Cultural Ambassador and Universal Peace Ambassador in International capacities. He is extremely influential through his works, especially as a philosophical advocate and practitioner of the environmental arts methods developing the Sustainable Age revolution.

    Jakupca with his wife, Renate, are the co-creators of the 'Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts', aligning the vision with real-world social conditions and logistics. This work established and popularized inductive formulas for scientific inquiry, sometimes called the Iceality Method.  His demand for a planned procedure of investigating all things natural marked a new turn in the rhetorical and theoretical framework for the science of aesthetics, much of which surrounds conceptions of proper Environmental Art Methodology today.

    Jakupca has been recognized as the 'Spiritual Father of the Environmental Arts Movement' and in that capacity, several disciples of his work went on to spread the word on Iceality.   His ideas were influential in the 1990's among scholars like Jane Alexander, Chairwoman of the National Endowment of the Arts (NEA), who in the ‘AMERICAN CANVAS’ Project frequently adheres to the Method of Iceality approach in its idealistic visions and entrepreneurial inquiries.   Major organizations, in particular, the United Nations, featured his Theory on Iceality in many of their World Conferences. The result of this major global public promotion at the United Nations level is that the Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts is now considered as the cornerstone of the modern sustainable global Environmental Art Movement, and this concept is now replicated by artists, architects, urban planners and sustainable organizations throughout the World, reflecting a still growing global audience.  However, it must be noted that not all of Jakupca's contemporaries did accept the new theory at once.

    David Jakupca is also considered to be the philosophical influence behind the dawning of the millenniums Sustainable Age. In his works, David Jakupca called for a development of avant-garde trilateral symmetry of social systems to align his vision with real-world social conditions and logistics that contend with the problems facing earth’s future. He always proposed that these environment/humanitarian/cultural systems should be done in conjunction with charitable purposes as a matter of healing this planet. Recalling Einstein’s admonition, paraphrased here, that a problem cannot be solved by the same thinking that created the problem in the first place, Jakupca, being ever mindful of the ecospheric integrity, advocated that the Environmental Arts should be practical and have as a holistic purpose the improvement of all living things.
    This changed the course of art in history, from a merely contemplative state, as it was found in ancient times, to a practical, inventive modern state  that will, it time, continue to lead to the new Methods of Iceality that will prevent Ecocide and make possible a Sustainable Age, a Culture of Peace for all Living Things in the following centuries.

    Although much of these Methods of Iceality proposals will not be established in his lifetime, his legacy was already considered by TIME Magazine, in their 2000 Millennium Edition, as one of their Heroes of the Planet.
    Similar to a Cultural District with the historic ARK in Berea as its focal point, the North East Ohio Area where David worked, has been 'branded' as the Home of the Environmental Art(s) Movement by the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) and as 'Cultural Industry' will continue to foster civic identity, cultivate tourism, and brand Ohio Environmental Arts and Culture in the Bioregion.

    For as one of his profilers, India Keyes commented, Jakupca's influence in the future world is so important that every person, plant or animal well being may be traced back to him.  It is possible that someone using the Methodology of Iceality may find the cause of cancer, solve the worlds hunger problem or eliminate global warming.

    David Jakupca’s philosophy in Art is displayed in his vast and varied art works and writings, which might be divided into the three great branches of the 'Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts':

    ~ Environmental works – in which his ideas for a universal reform of knowledge, scientific method and the improvement of a sustainable state of Peace for all living things is presented.

    ~ Humanitarian works – in which his reforms in moral philosophy and social practices for Mankind are proposed.

    ~ Artistic works – in which he presents his original applied aesthetics on art and cultural objet d’arts.

    The historic A.R.K. in Berea is the first structure in Cuyahoga County, Ohio to incorporate sustainable building concepts from the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992.  It was hand built in 1994 by David and Renate Jakupca and considered the global home of the Environmental Arts Movement.
    Estimated replacement value at $119,000 by the Cuyahoga County Auditor's Office, its value goes up exponentially when its historical, social and environmental factors are added in.

It gained international popular attention when it was it exhibited by ICEA at the 1993 UN World Conference on Human Rights held in Vienna, Austria and has become one of the most recognized anti-racists logo's in existence. It also caused repercussions for the groups connected with the logo and this has been documented in the INTERNECINE MATRIX  http://theicea.com/page21

"The ANSWER to Peace and Global Harmony" Official Statement 2013 National Martin Luther King Day of Service to Peace Through Iceality


The ANSWER to Peace and Global Harmony (Pax Mundo)

Official Statement 2013 National Martin Luther King Day of Service to Peace Through Iceality
(National Day of Service – Economic Development)

ARK in Berea: Over the years, we as Americans have been united in our grief as violence over takes the country. Regardless of the motive behind such violence, no act of aggression can be accepted or justified. Terrorism and violent extremism should find no shelter or refuge in any ideology, political opinion or religion. We feel The Answer is to overcome this common threat and work harder to promote the iceality of a sustainable global culture of peace.

The Answer to preventing these types of attacks from recurring in the future is to unite as one human race for Peace. We firmly believe that respect for human and environmental rights and greater understanding between people from different racial and religious backgrounds must be the cornerstone of society in today's fast-changing, globalized world.

The Worlds Children Peace Monument (WCPM) and the Great American Peace Trail (GAPT) Projects are designed by the International Center for Environmental Arts to engage all the Worlds Children with cross-cultural awareness in order to attain the common goal of sharing peace and diversity with their neighbors. They have direct community impact through neighborhood beautification, community and economic development while building self-esteem and hope. They will help to build better societies where everyone can live, respect and accept each other as they diplomatically negotiate errors and differences of prejudice and hatred and instill in its place the belief in the necessity of communication. Unfortunately, extremism exists in all communities, ethnicities and religions. An effective response must begin with communication of the truth of our common humanity. Those who learn to believe in the dialogue of iceality cannot be susceptible to violent extremist ideology.

Peace is too important to be left solely in the hands of politicians; they do not have the training or inclination to commit to openness, equality and democracy. Therefore, our main goal for the WCPM is to educate the Children today, so they will be able to train and stop the violence in their future.....and that begins within each one of us Now". We now have the power to make this World a beautiful place one child at a time. Begin with your own child and watch how that child radiates towards the other Worlds children. We are all children of the universe and we have a right to live here in peace". Ambassador Renate

The project is to encourage positive community participation through the establishment of site-specific works of public art, through cultural education and entrepreneurial training to children around the World.

"Today, if we live up to our responsibilities and recommit to our tradition of civic participation, there is nothing our country cant achieve. Dr. King once said that, "Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve." In this defining moment, we each have the chance to reach out to our neighbors, lend a helping hand, and answer that call to greatness. By utilizing the 'Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts' to build the national coast-to-coast The Great American Peace Trail (GAPT) we leave a legacy of Peace and Goodwill, neighborhood beautification, civic and cultural development and arts training for all Ages for all Time". Ambassador Renate

Peace Friends,

A Cultural Districts Blog Salon or 'How Iceality saved Earth'



The "Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts" is practical study on the aesthetics of the relationship between Humans and their Environment through Arts and Culture, ultimately promoting an effective sustainable global Culture of Peace between all Living Things ~ Human, Animal and Plant Kingdoms


The Cultural Districts Blog Salon

Theresa Cameron
I’m so excited to welcome you to our blog salon devoted solely to arts, entertainment, and cultural districts. Wondering what exactly we’re talking about? We loosely define a cultural district as: “…a well-recognized, labeled, mixed-use area of a city in which a high concentration of cultural facilities serves as the anchor of attraction and robust economic activity.”
A few important bits of information:
  • More than 600 communities in the U.S. have designated cultural districts.
  • Some cities have formal boundary lines with specific zoning ordinances and economic tax incentives.
  • Others have more informal, unofficial boundaries that become a marketing focal point to cluster arts organizations.
  • Twelve states have enacted statewide arts, entertainment, and cultural district legislation.
Since the late 1990s, Americans for the Arts has been monitoring the growth of arts, entertainment, and cultural districts across the United States, documenting their location, and reviewing, in relevant cases, their legislation of creation. In 1998 Americans for the Arts published the Cultural Districts Handbook, a first of its kind guide for establishing and developing districts. The Handbook examined districts in 24 U.S. cities. Since the Handbook’s publication, however, the number of districts has grown. Given the phenomenal rate at which the district model has been and continues to be adopted across the country, there is a clear and compelling need for new technical assistance and training resources designed to meet the unique needs of those charged with creating, maintaining, and evaluating districts.
So with the help of the National Endowment for the Arts we have embarked on a new project to help us provide more up to date information, tools, and resources on cultural districts.
To kick our project off, we hosted our first preconference on arts, entertainment, and cultural districts in Pittsburgh this June. We had over 150 attendees from the United States and Canada. The presenters were so terrific we decided to ask them to share their insights with all of you through this blog salon. Be sure to check back every day this week for new posts! Enjoy.

Cleveland's Annual International Peace Day Activity



Cleveland's Annual International Peace Day Activity

Peace Monuments Around the World" has added and updated the links connected to the 'Worlds Children Peace Monument' (WCPM) and the 'Great American Peace Trail' (GAPT) according to Edward W. Lollis, Editor. The new links will help document the growth and continuity of the projects as well as reflect their diversity as they expand in the global community.

Dedicated in using Environmental Arts and Culture to nurture iceality in our young people, through the WCPM and GAPT, students are able to develop their creativity and foster their own care to Society.

David Jakupca, Executive Director of the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) remarked, "To promote the Theory of Iceality in Environmental Arts in a sustainable global culture of peace to our youths, we need to develop in them an insatiable curiosity about the world around us. Young people always like to bring arts into daily life and they always bring us big surprise! The 'Worlds Children Peace Monument' (WCPM) and the 'Great American Peace Trail' (GAPT) is a creative catalyst combination of "youth arts" and "civic education" for young people to express their creativity while they can also learn to care about all living things around the world".


Ambassador Renate said, "As part of Cleveland's Annual International Peace Day activities, ICEA would like to express our gratitude to Edward W. Lollis and "Peace Monuments Around the World" for fully supporting these children's peace projects. Young people are full of imagination, which has been reflected in their art works. Students decorated their city's Peace Stones with the themes of transcending borders, showing their care of peoplein a creative and interesting way."
