CSU students submit mural designs
By: Trinity Stevens
Cleveland State University art students are getting to bring some of their work to the greater Cleveland community. In an opportunity to create a public mural for Great Lakes, students have submitted their potential designs for the artwork.
Two of the pieces submitted were by Mya Rowe. Both potential designs feature the prominent Playhouse Square chandelier. In one design there is a closeup of a couple eating dinner and drinking a Great Lakes beer in one of the many downtown dining locations, while the chandelier is clearly visible in the background through the restaurant window. The second design shows us a street view where we see the chandelier straight-on, surrounded by the blurred exteriors of downtown buildings.
A third piece was submitted by Taylor Johnson. This potential design gives us a glimpse of different areas and notable things around Cleveland, while spelling out the words “OHIO” and “CLEVELAND” within the mural itself.
With all three ideas for the mural having been submitted, it is up to Great Lakes to make the final decision as far as which one they want to go with. We will follow the progress of the mural in a series of two follow-up articles later on at various points in its creation. Look forward to “The Cauldron’s” next issue where we will feature the chosen artwork by Great Lakes for the mural design and look at the beginning of the work process.
