PANDEMONIUM 2015 Honorees

This year’s PANDEMONIUM 2015 Cleveland Public Theatre’s (CPT) Annual Fundraising Benefit was held at the theatre on Detroit Avenue, which recognized honorees Robert and Yan Maschke for their exemplary community service and philanthropy throughout the Greater Cleveland area and presented them with the 2015 PAN Award.

Themed, “Transform,” PANDEMONIUM 2015 offered guests a unique and immersive arts and entertainment experience throughout CPT’s campus. In addition, guests had the opportunity to view innovative and exciting live performances. Cleveland Public Theatre’s educational programs empower youth and adults to let their imaginations transcend the everyday – creating inspiring and transformative performances for the community. This year’s benefit recognized honorees Robert and Yan Maschke for their exemplary community service and philanthropy throughout the Greater Cleveland area and presented them with the 2015 PAN Award. 

An award-winning architect, Robert was one of the first believers in the vision for CPT’s Gordon Square neighborhood. In 2001, he bought two prominent buildings on Detroit Avenue, where he moved his firm Robert Maschke ARCHITECTS in 2004. He established 1point618 Gallery on the street level of his business, and he also designed two innovative houses in Gordon Square. He serves on several community Boards, including the Gordon Square Arts District, the Cleveland Arts Prize, and The Union Club.

Yan has demonstrated a parallel dedication to civic leadership. She serves on the Board of the Cleveland Institute of Art, and her strong support of the arts has been invaluable to the Cleveland community. Yan works as the Business Unit Director at Nordson Corporation, a global leader in designing and manufacturing precision dispensing equipment. The company also has a strong philanthropic presence here in Cleveland.
