Connecting Cleveland’s Transit Systems to the Arts

Uncle Fred is back with a brand new episode of Arts on the Heights taking us on a quick whirlwind tour of some of the biggest projects slated for Cleveland this year.

In 2008 University Circle, Cleveland’s cultural capital, will be conveniently connected to the main downtown neighborhoods with the much anticipated Euclid Corridor Project.

This massive transportation construction project will move over one million people every year. And while these daily commuters are riding the state-of-the-art and environmentally friendly Silver Line transit vehicles, they will be treated to a eye pleasing array of public art statues, sculptures, and designs.

Taking the arts into consideration is notably present throughout every stage of RTA’s designs. You can see examples, ideas, and photos of what’s to come for yourself in the Public Art Master Plan. RTA is not overlooking anything, incorporating the arts and trendy designs into every stage of construction down to the trash cans!
