The Cleveland Foundation is providing a $150,000 dollar for a public-art project on the RTA’s Red Line, which runs from Cleveland Hopkins Airport to downtown. The installations will feature local and national artists illustrating the work of authors who have won the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award, which celebrates diversity.

Lillian Kuri is with the Cleveland Foundation’s urban planning division. She says the project will be done in time for next year’s Republican National Convention.

“I hope over many, many years it becomes a cultural attraction in of itself. The idea of riding transit, learning about Cleveland, learning about literary authors and having an incredible experience in of itself.”

Kuri says the project will be managed by the city of Cleveland and LAND Studios
