Thirty-five bluebird sculptures were installed throughout Edgewater Hill, illustrating the neighborhood's position on the Atlantic Flyway as a rest stop for migrating birds, as well as instilling a sense of identity for this well-established Cleveland neighborhood. On utility poles, street corners, warehouse buildings, and homes, the Edgewater Hill Blue Birds make visible the connection between the neighborhood and Lake Erie. During the summer months, some of the Blue Birds are hidden in the trees. In the fall and winter, the Blue Birds reveal themselves and appear as bright blue ornaments set off against the seasonal backdrops.
The Edgewater Hill Blue Bird project is a collaboration between the Edgewater Hill Block Club, Detroit Shoreway Community Development Corporation, Ward 17 Councilman Matt Zone, Neighborhood Progress Inc., Neighborhood Connections, and LAND studio.
