Finding Common Ground at Cleveland Public Library – Community Discussions for #CG2019


Cleveland Public Library is joining the Cleveland Foundation and community partners in leading Common Ground 2019 discussions. Common Ground is a day of community conversation. United by a common question, all Common Ground conversations have the same goal: to create spaces where meaningful connections are made and purposeful actions begin.

Painting the Possible: Art as Community Builder

Join us for a free meal and conversation to discuss public art’s role in influencing Cleveland’s environment and its residents and the ways that public art could serve as inspiration, therapy, and opportunity for Cleveland’s neighborhoods. Conversation leaders from FRONT International and Transformer Station help us to explore how Cleveland’s art renaissance has impacted our community and to discuss future public art opportunities.
