Building Bridges

Murals with a Mission

Stearns and Carnegie- Summer 2007

During the Summer of 2007 the Summer Mural Institute program occurred  as a collaboration between Young Audiences of Greater Cleveland,  Building Bridges Mural Program, and West Side Ecumenical Ministry.

WSEM and Building Bridges began collaboration in 2006 as part of the Workforce Development Program.  The Workforce Development Program provides an annual stipend for  teens to learn job skills and leadership development through placement at various worksites.  Building Bridges is a worksite of the WIA program providing youth the opportunity to learn professional skills applicable to any work environment through full engagement with the creation of a public mural. The results of the Summer 2007 collaboration will be installed at the corner of Stearns and Carnegie in the Spring of 2008.
