ABOUT The Community of Relationships: Community Mural Project:
The museum has committed to Community of Relationships, a broad, comprehensive community engagement initiative funded by The Cleveland Foundation. One aspect of Community of Relationships engages the museum and its neighboring communities – Fairfax, Glenville, Hough, and East Cleveland – to work collaboratively to change the visual appearance and identity of the neighborhoods through mural projects. The free trolley tour on March 31 celebrates the newly installed neighborhood artwork.

The Community Mural Project is supported by The Cleveland Foundation and Charter One Foundation. Additional donation by Glidden®, an AkzoNobel brand.
