We are very interested in this project because we work and live within the Buckeye-Shaker, Larchmere, Woodland Hills and Mt. Pleasant neighborhoods, and we would be thrilled to create art with its inhabitants. Moreover, we are interested in working with the community members who reside, work and/or frequent these neighborhoods because we share similarities with them. We feel compelled to work on this project because we offer a unique perspective on creating community-inspired artwork and we feel confident that our work will enhance the neighborhood.    

We are an interdisciplinary arts collective with over 10 years of experience as working artists. We’ve had the pleasure of creating, among others, four meaningful projects that incorporated elements of public participation. Those projects include: Constant As the Sun (MOCA Cleveland), Saint Luke’s Walking Path (LAND Studio), Station Hope (Cleveland Public Theatre), Out of Place (Rooms to Let) and See Also (LAND Studio).

Our vision is to not only respond to the physical characteristics of the sites, but to also respond to the needs and interests of the communities that occupy them as well. We will achieve this by engaging in community dialogue and ensuring that there is not a disconnect between the artwork created and its community. We will investigate the community’s needs and interests and involve them in our creative process through public meetings, social media dialogue and street interviews. Our goal is to enhance and beautify the neighborhood with sculpture, text and images while engaging citizens. We will take high interest in discovering community members’ interests and issues. 

 

 

 

 

 

Our installation will showcase innovative thinking and diversity. Citizens want to take pride in their community and we are eager to assist them in their efforts. We are excited to shift experiences in the aforementioned neighborhoods by creating beautiful and meaningful work.
