Community Arts Center

Art-Making Experiences for All Ages

The CAC houses the community arts staff and education outreach program. Preparation for signature community events, including Parade the Circle, Chalk Festival, and Winter Lights Lantern Festival, will take place at the CAC, connecting this space to the culminating events at the museum. In addition, and for the first time, the Community Arts Center gives the museum a dedicated space to properly store large puppets, costumes, art-making supplies, and more.

To coincide with the opening of the Community Arts Center, the CMA announces Parade the City. Due to the impact of COVID-19 on large public gatherings, the CMA has reimagined Parade the Circle 2021. Parade the City keeps the spirit of the annual event alive by pairing local artists with community groups to create celebratory art installations at community locations throughout Cleveland.
