Art & Culture Connector

The INTER|URBAN, 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, is a transformation of Cleveland’s public transit rail system into a large-scale public art experience. This city-wide initiative connects public transit riders physically, socially, and culturally to not only their surroundings but to some of the most important and difficult issues facing our society.

Inspiration 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.
