In tribute to one of Cleveland’s most influential artists, Julian Stanczak, Canvas City will recreate the mural Stanczak made in 1973 for the Cleveland Area Arts Council’s City Canvas program. In addition, a number of contemporary artists have been invited to develop new mural projects that will be realized following the closing of the first edition of FRONT. These proposals will be on view in a group exhibition at a downtown Cleveland location.
Canvas City is made possible with major funding by The Char and Chuck Fowler Family Foundation. The project is sponsored by Sherwin-Williams with additional support by the John P. Murphy Foundation.
