Mural At Clark + West 25th

Public art is a necessary element of an engaged city. Cleveland has lots of it — from commissioned murals to informal graffiti. Titled "It's Up to Us," the mural on Clark Avenue (on the northwest corner of the West 25th intersection) showcases the vibrant ethos of the Clark-Fulton district, as well as Cleveland writ large. Christopher "Chris" Luciani and John Rivera-Resto, along with 30 local students, designed and painted the mural between 2012 and 2014. "A great mural lives within an environment. But it does not preach, it does not blame; it makes us understand," Rivera-Resto said upon completion of the work. Based on community feedback and overall aesthetics, we'd say the painting accomplishes precisely that.
