Project Topic: Collinwood History
Project Description: A spin-off of the museum project “Inside Out”, Collinwood history is subject to neighbors’ interpretation and memories of events, people and places significant to the area’s past, which will be collaged, scanned and printed onto waterproof canvases and housed in gilded frames on posts with placards revealing a phone number to dial-in for a pre-recorded historical audio tour.
Community Engagement Strategy: A community-wide workshop will be held in summer 2016 for anyone with a past or present link to the neighborhood to paint, print, paste into collaborative collages and record their memories of Collinwood. Research from the ‘Cleveland Memory Project’ will guide the theme of each canvas, ensuring works of art that are completely original yet reflective of Collinwood’s history.
