Avid Global Travelers, Ambassadors David and Renate Jakupca, Love to Find Beauty and Peace Everywhere in the World

There they go……from Vienna to Istanbul to Johannesburg to Cairo and more, they have acquired an incredible assortment of lovely keepsakes from traveling overseas as independent observers for the United Nations. “My husband told me we either had to get another storage unit, build a museum, or I should start my own shop,” Renate says. Hiding away her finds seemed meaningless so a museum with a shop seemed appropriate. The ARK in Berea Eco Museum with a shop was the perfect solution to her insatiable desire to collect beautiful vintage things. Born in Austria, Renate began by selling a few items at German fests, and just a few months later, she was ready to move to bigger things. Twenty Years after that, The Trach’ten Tradition is still at it’s current address at the ARK in Berea Eco-Museum as part of North East Ohio’s main historic thoroughfare. As the ‘Spiritual Father of the Environmental Arts Movement’ and founder of ICEA, David Jakupca wanted the ARK in Berea Eco-Musem to stand out as the global home of the Environmental Arts Movement. Its mission is the Theory of ICEALITY, that is to assist an understanding of the relationships between Humans and their Environment through the Arts, it was imperative that the ARK in BEREA ECO-Museum have a distinctive aesthetic appeal as an  artist’s studio while simultaneously actually helping the environment.

Gothic Revival at the ARK in Berea
“The place that is impressive and where the Ambassador still live and work. David created this sustainable future showplace for the couturiers that caused a sensation when it debuted. In 1994 it appeared on the cover of the Plain Dealers HOME MAGAZINE, the areas prestigious journal, written by Karen Sandstrom”

“It was boule de neige – it snowballed from there.” It was all new what the Jakupca’s were doing then…..and what they still do.” David is very innovative. Because of his style, he did things in the ARK in Berea that were truly workable long before anybody else did. He used recycled materials when they were not fashionable then. He was very ahead of his time. “The Jakupca taste is not for everyone. The Jakupca’s are only interested in their taste: they are sure of what they want and what they have is the best – not just commercially made objects but genuine Art…the ARK in Berea Eco-Museum has actual Egg & Cove molding made with real eggs!

Today, internationally, many of the new robber barons try to emulate the ‘Jakupca Look’ in their houses. A Big Mistake. Today, everyone wants to be green and earth friendly. Only the Jakupca’s can do ‘Jakupca’s Style’… and it looks ridiculous when others try to do it, especially in modern their prefab gated communities. Attempts to copy this look entails a lot of ‘cheating’ without the necessary courage of originality…it comes out looking awful for them. But then that is was makes the ARK in Berea Eco Museum unique.

Renate says selecting items to decorate the Museum from her store comes naturally. She chooses things that remind her of the places she has been and the people she has met on her travels. “I don’t like things to look too designed,’ she says. “David, my husband likes to joke that I can dig through a pile of items and find that one gem that everyone else has missed.” Everything in the store looks as if it has a history–even brand-new items have a soft patina and vintage-inspired charm.

Shoppers find things here they likely wouldn’t find anywhere also. Vintage European clothes, a hand-carved toy from Bavaria, terra-cotta carnival masks from Vienna, and whimsical dolls from Bohemia are just a handful of the fanciful yet functional wares inside the delightful shop. And ‘Vienna Koffee Klatch Salon’  with delicious home made middle eastern European desserts, coffees and teas. These informal Koffee Katcht salons are hosted partly to entertain and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation followed by action. All treats and activities were free and open to the public.

“Overall, each items is a part of the whole,” Renate says, ” I just love my work–it truly is a labor of love. I wish I could pick certain pieces and put them in a jar, label it ‘The Vienna Market,’ and put it on my shelf at home. It would always make me smile.”

“The ARK in Berea Eco Museum from the 1970’s has been practically an open house for friends. David makes a ‘soup of the day’ every morning so friends, artists, family, or whoever can just stop by – say hello to our greeter dog Mickey, and feel welcome.” Ambassador Renate

“The ARK in BEREA Eco-Museum has a soul and personality. It is imbued with the ethnic history, traditions and customs of all our ancestors and people who have come before us…..I am now the steward of that legacy” Said Ambassador Renate “You observe your Family’s children or all the Worlds Children, making the same absurd mistakes, heart-rending mistakes many of which I made at their age. It’s by observing the young, indeed, that you eventually understand the sort of idiot you yourself were once upon a time — and perhaps still are. And before there was nothing you can say or do to prevent it. Now, hopefully the ARK in Berea will set an example for them to follow and enjoying everyday of Life”.

An Open Letter to President Trump

Date: April 5, 2017
Category: Government and Politics

Dear President Trump,
On March 16, You announced a budget plan which calls for increasing funds for military spending and homeland security. To set off the increased spending, You have proposed sweeping cuts to several different governmental organizations that you and your administration may not think are necessary for American life.

We at The International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) are aware of the implications of these budget cuts and would like to defend Environmental Arts Programs like the WORLDS CHILDREN PEACE MONUMENT (WCPM), COASTWEEKS dot Com and the National Coast-to-Coast ‘GREAT AMERICAN PEACE TRAIL’. Across the world, the Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts is the cultural backbone of communities. The Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts can influence another culture and even bring cultures together. Environmental Arts is so strong on the global stage because of our uniqueness. The music, artwork and theater are all global phenomena using Iceality. The Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts is a powerful tool, one that the whole Trump administration should want to take full advantage of. Since 1987 in Cleveland, Ohio, Environmental Art has been a global commodity, and the power of a universal Language of Design that Environmental Arts is now considered as the cornerstone of the modern global sustainable movement and this concept is now replicated by artists, architects, urban planners and sustainable organizations throughout the World, reflecting a still growing global audience.

The Environmental Arts are also important for the American individual through the building of the GREAT AMERICAN PEACE TRAIL, and have now become a source of comfort and confidence building for Americans of all ages. Community artistic activities connected to the GREAT AMERICAN PEACE TRAIL encourage the individual to be in touch with his or her thoughts in a beautiful way and provide a healthy way for one to be in touch with his or her emotions. When someone is sad, he or she can channel sadness into a poem of peace and iceality. If someone is happy, he or she can perform an upbeat song. Any emotion in between can be channeled into the Art of Iceality in some way. The GREAT AMERICAN PEACE TRAIL can provide a way to express oneself in a world that can often silence emotions.

The GREAT AMERICAN PEACE TRAIL is also is a source of togetherness among Americans that can Unite America. Iceality allows people of all ages to create a community of good. It is touching that human beings can form such strong bonds over something so intrinsic to all cultures. Whether it’s through performing or listening, Iceality provides a common thread for all of us.

The Environmental Arts are now and always will be the centerpiece of American culture. Most popular American songs or famous American artworks are now a product of our love for Iceality in the arts. In recent years, arts programs at schools have been cut all around the country. The federal government to support the popular cause. The federal government, by supporting the environmental arts programs, says that the arts DO matter. By saying the arts do matter, the Trump Administration makes clear that the fostering of American culture is a high priority. The Trump Administration can make America great again by preservation of the soul of our country by creating the National GREAT AMERICAN PEACE TRAIL.

The International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) for 30 years already has a strong appreciation for the arts. Poetry slams, a cappella performances, art shows and civic engagement are quite popular in Cleveland. Greater Cleveland is expands its role as global home of the International Environmental Art Movement as the Primary Economic Engine for the Region and as the ‘Cradle for a Universal Culture of Peace’ for All Living Things. (Worlds Children). We are blessed to live in one of the most well-known hubs for art in the world, whether it be at the historic ARK in Berea or Playhouse Square. The only way to support for the arts is to continue our love and support for the Environmental Arts. Promoting Iceality here at The International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) and in our immediate community is easy and socially worthwhile.

Now that I think about it, there should be a National Iceality Day that is more encompassing in its scope than any other celebration in America. Iceality Day would be a day of potential, especially for All the Worlds Children. It is not about something ‘other’, but something we can celebrate and hold as part of ourselves. It is as intimate as Earth Day is for the Plants and Animals and International Peace Day is for the Human’s but more encompassing in its scope than any other celebration on the calendar. It is about US as much as it is about the Animals, Fish, and Birds, about the Plants and Trees, Land and Waters. There is no escaping the Planet Earth. Very few have done it and never for long. The astronauts that are on the International Space Station are going to be off the Earth for a short time; the longest time anyone has spent away from our planet yet…so the universal symbol of peace, the WCPM is ready for Peace in Space.

The WORLDS CHILDREN PEACE MONUMENT members and scholars can support the global iceality methodology on a deeper level by supporting local arts. Like arts programs in schools, local museums and galleries all over the country need funding more than ever. Although on a smaller stage, smaller museums and galleries ensure that the environmental arts continue to thrive. Volunteering and even time spent on social media sites could make a difference.

We at International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) also encourage You and Your Administration to teach the Theory of Iceality in America’s Classrooms and for scholars to take their appreciation for the environmental arts and pursue iceality as a lifelong goal. Keep performing and listening, keep painting, designing and analyzing.

Please take matters into your own hands to preserve our American environmental artistic culture for yourself, your countrymen and for All the Worlds Children.

When we do this, Life is exciting, beautiful and rewarding” “Fear is a dead end, but Peace through Iceality always has a future”. “Practice Peace through Iceality Aggressively”. “Peace through Iceality should be a main theme in out Life”. “Iceality calls upon the different political, religious and cultural traditions to join hands and to cooperate with us.” “Sometimes Goodwill is best expressed through service.

If you gain the Rights to something then consequently someone must lose their related Rights. A simple fact that is easy to learn but hard to practice”

Through their international advocacy and educational activities promoting from a cultural perspective, the Jakupca’s have contributed to the revitalization of cultural and environmental diversity, and the strengthening of local communities and economies worldwide. In 1987, by founding the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) at the historic ARK in Berea, they have combined their expertise in ecology, art and culture to really unravel the evolutionary dynamics of humanity. Their original ‘Theory of Iceality on Environmenta Arts’ , is the first fundamental change in developing a Culture of Peace in over 2000 years. The Theory underscores Nature’s view about the integrative universal process of freedom and is the first to connect not only Man, but all Living Things (Human, Plant and Wildlife Kingdoms) to achieving a sustainable global Culture of Peace.

American Cultural Ambassadors David and Renate Jakupca Expands Role of Greater Cleveland being the International Center of the Environmental Art Movement

 

 

 

The Famous ARK in Berea:

ARK in Berea – Home of the Environmental Art Movement

In 2012, as part of the 25 Year Iceality Silver Revelation, the Greater Cleveland Area has become recognized as  the Global Home of the Environmental Arts Movement by American Cultural Ambassadors David and Renate Jakupca of the the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) as a ‘Cultural Industry’, to foster civic identity, cultivate jobs and tourism, and brand Ohio Environmental Arts and Culture District in the Bioregion”

The Global Home of the Environmental Art Movement is the region in Northern Ohio that is noted for its growing concentration of Sustainable Design and Technology Industries. Geographically, the region occupies the same area as the Greater Cleveland Area where it is centered and where most of the companies are located. It is in the northeastern part of Ohio, an area stretching from the south end to Akron-Canton, Lorain in the west and Youngstown in the east.

It is visualized as the home for many of the world’s largest technology corporations, as well as thousands of small start ups working on a sustainable future. The term ICEALITY refers to the region’s original innovator, the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA), the environmental arts pioneer, but it eventually expands to all sustainable practices, and is now generally used as a metonym for the global cultural of peace sector.

Since 1987, the success of ICEA has spawned a number of other Peace/Environmental Centers throughout the United States and the World, but ICEA continues to make the north coast a leading hub for innovation and development. This question may have occurred to many people’s minds when they came across the term ICEALITY. While its meaning is mostly unknown to them, the revolutionary ideas and developments which have been made in this term affect everyone’s daily life, and it is hard to imagine our modern civilization without them. Greater Cleveland is now recognized as the heartland of the Environmental Peace Industry which is based on the ‘Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts.

Iceality saw the “development to the LEED program, the Worlds Children Peace Monument, Urban Lakefront Development and has generated a lot of information on elements related to climate change, population and human rights.

David Jakupca, Spiritual Father of the Environmental Art Movement, asserts that, “Respect for human and environmental rights and greater understanding between people from different racial and religious backgrounds must be the first goal of society in today’s fast-changing, globalized world.”  The goal is accomplished according to Jakupca, “Is by focusing on the creative process and affirming to the principles of the “Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts”.

The  Theory on Environmental Arts (ICEALITY*) was enthusiastically embraced by the United Nations by 1990 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.

Looking at our over populated society in which Sustainability has become a necessity against Ecocide, the crucial role of Iceality in the Environmental Arts and Design Revolution becomes even more evident.

This also makes Iceality a philosophy meaning that there is hope for Humanity after all, and that improvements in our Society can take place daily. American Cultural Ambassadors David and Renate Jakupca see it as a transformation from the rust belt to a place where, “Economics and Culture combined with leading edge technology and thriving entrepreneurship, financial investors and pioneering organizational styles provide the background for the most profound inquiry ever into the Nature of Peace that will affect our planet’s very evolution for centuries to come.”

They would like to convey the image of ICEALITY as the nucleus of the modern sustainable agenda for saving our Planet, presenting the most important developments of major elements which comprise the future which is the relationship between Humans and their Environment through Design and Culture, ultimately promoting an effective sustainable global Culture of Peace between all Living Things in the Human, Plant and Animal Kingdoms.

Come to the Ohio’s Environmental Council conservation network at the 2013 Green Gala celebration to honor Ohio’s American Cultural Ambassadors David and Renate Jakupca as environmental heroes and share the successes that they helped us achieve.

Environmental Arts As An Economic Engine For the Region:
In a historic re-unification of the North Coast 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) at the famous ARK in Berea as a ‘Cultural Industry’, to foster civic identity, cultivate jobs and tourism, and brand Ohio Environmental Arts and Culture District in the Bioregion.  http://theicea.com/page25

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 with the idea of creating a prototype NGO that is easily replicated in other communities, cities, states and countries.
 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.

Time Magazine Heroes of the planet american cultural ambassadors david renate jakupca icealityAs 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,  and in that capacity, several disciples of his work went on to spread the word on The Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts.

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 culture of Peace for All Living Things.

Jakupca’s Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts (ICEALITY*) was enthusiastically embraced by the United Nations and by 1992 was featured 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 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.
