Art & Culture Connector
The INTER|URBAN is public arts program connecting public transit riders physically, socially, and culturally to their surroundings and some of the most important and difficult issues facing our society. Inspirations for the artworks are taken directly from award-winning literature of the Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards, which recognizes authors exploring ideas of social justice, diversity, and the celebration of all cultures and backgrounds. Each piece is a direct reflection of the artists’ selected inspiration.
The INTER|URBAN seeks to challenge public transit riders emotionally and intellectually, while making physical and cultural connections to their surroundings. The initiative looks to grow over several years, aiming to cement the cultural significance of art in the public realm.
It is produced by LAND studio in partnership with the City of Cleveland, the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA), Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA), The Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards, and The Cleveland Foundation.
