GCDC, Famicos, Councilman Hairston Partner For Graffiti Heart Mural Installation At Euclid-Green
GCDC, Famicos Foundation and Councilman Anthony Hairston partnered to bring Graffiti HeArt to Euclid-Green for a mural installation that celebrates the history and community of the Cleveland Ward 10 neighborhood. The mural, extending over 100 feet long and 12 feet at its highest, is located just east of Ivanhoe/ Belvoir on Euclid Avenue and can be seen at its fullest on the north side of the street.
GCDC, Famicos Foundation and Councilman Hairston sought community input for themes and images to be included in the mural. Among those included for visioning sessions were Euclid Park School and Ward 10 residents and stakeholders at Greater Faith Baptist Church and Five Pointe Community Center. Graffiti HeArt attended the visioning sessions to provide insight to the mural project.
The Euclid-Green mural was installed August 8th - August 9th. Euclid-Green residents were encouraged to show their support by honking their horn or participating in the community portion of the wall. The mural, celebrating the history and future of Euclid-Green, includes images of Collinwood High School football helmet, Duggan Park water park, Chandler Cars, King Cole’s Pizza, Black Lives Matter and an homage and quote from the late Congressman John R. Lewis.
The Euclid-Green mural project was made possible by generous funding from Neighborhood Connections, Cleveland City Council and Famicos Foundation. To view videos and photos of the mural installation, please visit GCDC and Graffiti HeArt on Facebook.
