The revived Harcourt Manor was in full splendor March 9, serving as host site for the RoxArts benefit for the Tiger Nation Fund, which advances the arts and sciences of Cleveland Heights-University Heights School District. Patrons who arrived early were treated to a personal behind-the-scenes tour of this four-story Elizabethan Revival mansion, led by decorator and owner, Anya Rudd. In the “basement,” the sounds of Alexander Wright and the Collaboration set the tone for sipping craft cocktails and savoring sumptuous hors d’oeuvres prepared by Doug Katz of fire, food and drink. Curated by glass artist Shayna Roth Pentecost, the silent auction featured more than 50 local artists, including house portrait artist Karen Katz, ceramicist Jenny Mendes and crochet fashion knitter Debbie Apple-Presser. A live auction allowed some lucky patrons to go home with the priceless Victor Schreckengost “Jazz Bowl” – for one year.  The most treasured art piece was the fused glass collaboration created by the artists of Larchmere Glassworks and the 325 students of Roxboro School. Inspired by their One School One Book project, the glass sculpture reflected the title of the book, “Masterpiece.” This was clearly marked not for sale, though many inquired about the price.
