"The magic that happens with the art process is intangible." – Joe Lanzilotta

Cleveland has a wealth of public art, from the Guardians of Transportation on the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge to the Free Stamp by City Hall to the colorful murals that dot our city. In 2003, Cleveland made its support of public art official when the city enacted legislation requiring capital improvement projects within city limits with budgets over $350,000 to designate at least 1.5% of the total budget toward the creation of public art.

Art has the power to change a viewer’s way of thinking and help to shape a city’s cultural identity. Furthermore, supporting local artists and their work leads to a more vibrant and diverse city. As Cleveland looks toward the future, join us in Public Square as we learn how public art can help transform the way we interact with the public realm.
