Thank you to all the Cleveland area artists who have submitted artwork for new river mile signs for the Cuyahoga River ship channel. You're helping us bring a little culture to the steel walls that line the banks.


A jury of artists and river organization people will choose artwork and produce the signs, which will be displayed at a media event at 11am at the Flats East Bank event on River Day, May 20, 2017.


The winning artists will be notified by May 1, and will be invited to participate in the press event.

The signs will be installed along the riverbanks later that month.

Cash prizes will be awarded to the artists whose work is chosen for the signs.
