Did You Know?

The George Gund Foundation annually commissions artists to photograph the Foundation’s areas of interest in Northeast Ohio for its annual reports.


In 2004, the Foundation selected Brooklyn-based artist Thomas Roma, a masterful and sympathetic recorder of the urban environment, to photograph Ohio City on Cleveland’s near west side. He shows us a healthy neighborhood, one where the streets are busy and the businesses active. There are no great dramas or tensions, merely the daily dance of urban life.
