For Summer Mural Institute 2016 Building Bridges will be bringing our exploration of Labor History to the Slavic Village Neighborhood of Cleveland Ohio. One unique characteristic of a Clevelander, is that we all relate to each other based upon what we know how to make.
We use our hands, and carve out the world in a unique way as the heart of the steal workers, metal stampers, and iron workers. . We are the backbone of the rustbelt Midwest!
Four artists will be pulling their energy together to create an allegorical piece based upon the history of our relationship to what we make. The trades and crafts of the Slavic Village as it relates to the historic tow path trail is what we will be exploring.
