About the Work

With generous support from the Char and Chuck Fowler Family Foundation, LAND studio developed a three-year plan for temporary public art in Public Square and the Mall beginning in 2016 and continuing through 2018, featuring projects with national and international artists, competitions for regional artists, a curated art wall dedicated to local artists on the square’s café, and programming.

The first of these projects—installed last summer and remaining through the beginning of this year— by CrackingArt, featured 376 colorful plastic animals. The project was located at the Cleveland Public Library and the Great Lakes Science Center, as well as in Public Square, and a number of city neighborhoods. 
 
This summer, Olalekan Jeyifous designed metal sculptures that depict scenes of civic discussion and peaceful protests.

Additionally, artist collective Cleveland SGS is designing sculptures based on signage found in the city’s neighborhoods. Both projects will be installed in Public Square.
Two murals completed to date, both by Cleveland artists, have been installed on the Public Square café art wall. The current artwork, by local artist Dante Rodriguez, was installed in August. The first three murals are part of a series of eight, which will be installed through the end of 2018. The café art wall creates a new and unique opportunity for LAND studio to work with emerging artists in this highly visible public space.
