In partnership with the City of Lakewood, Cuyahoga County, and the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority, LakewoodAlive seeks artists to review a request for qualifications for two proposed public art projects around the intersection of the Madison Avenue – Warren Road intersection:
- Project One: Creation of a mural on the north facing wall of the Fifth Third Bank Building and creation of a public art wrap on a new, yet to be installed bus shelter at the north-west corner of Madison-Warren.
- Project Two: Creation of a mural on the west facing wall of the Donut Pantry.
Artists are invited to apply for one or both projects.
Funded by a grant through Cuyahoga County to enliven Warren Road from Madison Avenue to Franklin Boulevard, these highly visible displays of public art will complement the addition of more than a dozen street trees that are to be planted later this year along with other streetscape improvements.
This project represents Phase Two of the Warren Road Gateway Project, which seeks to enhance one of Lakewood’s primary north-south roads and better connect neighborhoods to the Uptown and Downtown business districts. Phase One, from Detroit Avenue to Franklin Boulevard, saw the addition of a two-paneled mural, new transit waiting environment with a public art wrap, 14 new planter boxes and a restriping of Warren Road.
