Did you know...
One of the first mural projects in Cleveland dates back to 1973?
The first phase of the ground-breaking civic art project City Canvases occurred in 1973, when ten massive murals were designed and executed in downtown Cleveland.
A direct bridge between City Canvases and Canvas City is the re-creation of Julian Stanczak’s abstract mural on the Carter Manor building on Prospect Avenue. Stanczak’s surviving sketches and color swatches from the original mural design were the basis for this iteration of his monumental vertical composition.
FRONT 2018: An American City continued the large-scale civic discourse set into motion by City Canvases forty-five years ago with Canvas City, a contemporary mural project involving several architectural planes in downtown Cleveland. Extending beyond the time frame of the 2018 exhibition with ongoing mural commissions, Canvas City will continue into future presentations of FRONT International.
