Four local artists, along with members of neighborhoods bordering the museum: Fairfax; Glenville; Hough and East Cleveland have taken part in designing and creating vibrant community murals. At this year’s 21st annual Cleveland Museum of Art’s I Madonnari Chalk Festival, the mural artists and community volunteers had a chance to draft large-scale cartoons of their mural designs. Take a moment or two to view this video recorded at the Chalk Festival and listen to why the artists wanted to be a part of this unique community project.
Then on Saturday, November 6, celebrate with the Cleveland Museum of Art as it takes a free Lolly the Trolley tour of the new community murals. On the tour, participants will enjoy light refreshments and music, learn about the neighborhoods from museum representatives and meet the artists who created the murals.
