Cleveland Public Theatre
About the Work
The project’s design team identified three elements that would increase Cleveland Public Theatre’s street presence, including improvements to the building’s façade, entrance signage, and enhanced lighting. The team also created pathways that lead from the back parking area to the front entrance. Lastly, a metal framed marquee was developed for the second floor balcony with a red-orange neon inscription “Cleveland Public Theatre.”
How It Started
In the early 1990s, LAND studio, formerly Cleveland Public Art (then the Committee for Public Art), produced “Collaboration Or…?,” a volunteer program designed to identify locations that could benefit from an investment in public art. The storefront of Cleveland Public Theatre was one of the locations identified through this process.
