The Arts Commission is Creating Colorful Murals in the Old West End

There’s new art in the neighborhood, thanks to a project collaboration between the Old West End Neighborhood Initiatives (OWENI) and The Arts Commission. The project was planned with input from OWENI leadership and residents to beautify the community through resident engagement. Under the direction of local artist Natalie Lanese, youth volunteers from the Kent Library Branch helped to create a mural for installation on Detroit Avenue. Lanese designed imagery for local youth to paint, which took about 100 hours and one month to complete. This project created partnerships within the neighborhood, provided artistic opportunities and brightened up a gateway into the central city.

You can find the mural at 3333 N Detroit Avenue.
