Four local artists, along with members of neighborhoods bordering the museum: Fairfax; Glenville; Hough and East Cleveland have taken part in designing and creating vibrant community murals. At this year’s 21st annual Cleveland Museum of Art’s I Madonnari Chalk Festival, the mural artists and community volunteers had a chance to draft large-scale cartoons of their mural designs. Take a moment or two to view this video recorded at the Chalk Festival and listen to why the artists wanted to be a part of this unique community project.
Here at the CMA we have an outstanding team of guards who work everyday to protect our masterpieces and make sure the art stays in the galleries. Some of them, however, spend their free time creating art for galleries. These individuals organized a group called the Cleveland Museum of Art Protection Services Artist Group and they are presenting an exhibition titled Those Who Protect Also Create at the Fairmount Center for the Arts. The show will be on view through December 11, 2009 and is located at 8400 Fairmount Road in Novelty, O
