ABOUT FORUM

Forum is a project of LAND studio’s Landform program, which has been made possible by the Fowler Foundation. Landform’s purpose is to produce public artworks to enhance the public spaces of downtown Cleveland, including Public Square, the Mall, and the immediate surrounding areas.

The program draws on the talents of both local artists and artists from other places. Landform projects to date have included Olalekan Jeyifous’s “Protest,” Julia Christensen’s “Waiting for a Break,” and the colorful animal sculptures of the Cracking Art Group.

Soulcraft Cleveland is facilitating the design, fabrication, and installation of Forum’s decorative ceiling. Installation is planned for summer 2019. Forum’s footprint will measure 24 by 36 feet, and it will reach a height of 28 feet at the peak of its roof.The ceiling will comprise a series of intricate arches and will be constructed by eight artist-led teams of local residents.

The ceiling will be done in marquetry, the craft of creating images, abstract or representational, from the piecing together of wood veneers. Eight artists will lead teams of local residents—many of whom will not be artists—in creating the 40 individual artworks that will constitute the ceiling.
