See art exhibit: The Cleveland Museum of Art is exhibiting photos from the early career of Gordon Parks through June 9. Parks applied his vision to many other areas beyond photos; he was also a composer, writer and film director, most famously of 1971’s “Shaft.” The museum will show his documentary “Leadbelly,” about the folk/blues guitarist and singer, at 1:45 p.m. in Morley Lecture Hall, followed by a Q&A with curator Barbara Tannenbaum. Admission is $12, $9 members. Be sure to leave time before or after the show to check out the exhibit. clevelandart.org.
