Public Square

“As the heart of downtown Cleveland, Public Square is the perfect setting to connect our community to new arts and culture experiences.”



The recent transformation of downtown Cleveland’s Public Square continues with arts and cultural programming supported by a $100,000-investment from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture, thanks to funding from National Endowment for the Arts and Group Plan Commission, and in partnership with LAND studio.

Arts & Culture in the Square brings nine new projects to Public Square from June to August, 2017. The events, which include opera, poetry, jazz, story building, and theatrical performances, are free and open to the public. The programs were selected from a pool of applications by a committee of community artists and leaders.

Sanaa Julien, CEO of Programming and Operations, is excited for new programs in the heart of the city: “Through Group Plan Commission, we’re proud to invest in Arts & Culture in the Square to bring residents and visitors to our renovated and inviting public park.”
