Bridge that Bridges 2018 Application
About the Bridge that Bridges Project

A Bridge that Bridges is in its 3rd year! Since 2016, two cohorts of community members of have come together to discuss racism in our neighborhood. Together and with the help of over 75 volunteers messages of hope and unity are now painted along the East 22nd Street Bridge and Cedar Avenue Bridge over I-90. The 2018 cohort will complete the last part of the Cedar Bridge with their depictions of a more harmonious Cleveland.

Campus District and the Kings and Queens of Art will work with a diverse group of residents and stakeholders to create the mural addressing race which will adorn the Cedar Avenue bridge separating Downtown Cleveland and the Cedar-Central neighborhood. During the 3 month project the group will meet to engage in intentional conversations about race while designing a community mural depicting your vision of a unified community. We will be using the “Make Art Talk Race” practice developed by local community builders. The mural will be unveiled at a group planned public celebration in August 2018.
