About the Work

The Broadway Arch was built to act as a gateway to the Broadway neighborhood and greater Slavic Village. The sculpture spans Broadway near its intersection with East 49th Street. It refers to the city's street grid and connects an adjacent former gas-station site now being reclaimed as parkland by Slavic Village Development. 

The arch provides an interesting visual experience to passersby and extensions from the arch function as benches in the new public space.

Broadway Arch complements other public art projects in the Slavic Village neighborhood. Projects include rotaflora, Morgana Grasslands, Pixelating Morgana, and Morgana Run Trail.

How It Started

In conjunction with the rebuilding of Broadway through Slavic Village and accompanying streetscape improvements, Slavic Village Development, the local community development corporation, sought funding for a gateway structure that would mark this entrance to the neighborhood.

Primary funding for the arch is being provided by the Ohio and Erie Canalway Association, The Cleveland Foundation, and an anonymous donation.
