Cold Front is a permanent public artwork by Mark Reigelman, installed at the northern end of the pedestrian tunnel at W. 76th Street, connecting the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood to Edgewater Park on Lake Erie.

About the Art

Cold Front draws inspiration from the mile-thick glaciers that melted and receded across the northern United States thousands of years ago, leaving behind the formation of Lake Erie and the rest of the Great Lakes. The artwork is intended to create an icon and landmark for the neighborhood and Cleveland’s lakefront that celebrates this area’s unique natural history. It is scaled to engage motorists passing by on the Shoreway and to be visible from Edgewater Park. For people coming into and out of the pedestrian tunnel, it will create an engaging, grand, and whimsical experience that creates a sense of arrival into this part of the city.

This project was made possible with support from Ward 15 Councilman Matt Zone, the City of Cleveland, and Cuyahoga Arts and Culture.
