About the Work
The Tremont Elementary School mural was a collaborative project between Cleveland Public Art and ParkWorks, currently known as LAND studio. Two large images, printed on vinyl banners, were installed on the school building and served as a backdrop to the school’s playground and learning garden. Lakewood artist Erin Austin Brown created the winning design, which was selected through a juried competition. The two murals face the school's playground and learning garden. The murals colorfully depict daily life of the students and neighborhood children. Additional art elements were added later, most notably a decorative iron gateway element by artist Brinsley Tyrrell.
