Linda Wood

Linda Zolten Wood earned her BFA from Cleveland Institute of Art in 1987 and began her career as a theater set painter at Cain Park and Prop artist at The Cleveland Play House. After watching her work destroyed in post-production, she decided to create large-scale murals for private and public spaces, intended to remain intact a bit longer. Her Upcycled Arts Workshops are influenced by 1988 travels in India, which holds a national ethic of 'no waste', in which practically everything is repaired or re-used in some way: Conservation is a way of life. The Collinwood Painted Rain Barrel Project and Zolten Wood Design received Neighborhood Connections grants (The Cleveland Foundation) to serve Rose Center of Living Well senior citizens and nearby Salvation Army children for Arts & Health programming. She was honored to receive Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson's ‘Sustainable Hero Champion’ Award at the 2014 Sustainability Summit, and has been supported by Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District to raise awareness of water conservation for residents in Greater Cleveland. Her project was also selected as Editor's Choice for ‘Best of Cleveland’ by Cleveland Magazine, 2016. Her philosophy "Art For All" offers creativity to anyone who wants to try, regardless of economics or education: she has experienced the healing of the arts in all areas of life.
