CLEVELAND — A Black Lives Matter mural will be painted this weekend in Cleveland. In preparation for the task, the Cleveland Police Department has announced a road closure that starts Saturday morning and will be in effect until Sunday at 6 a.m.
According to police, East 93rd Street will be closed from Bessemer Avenue to Heath Avenue.
The mural is a collaboration between the city of Cleveland, councilman Blaine Griffin, R.A.K.E. and Graffiti Art.
"It is my vision to make the E. 93rd Street Corridor the Most Impressive Artistic Corridor in the City of Cleveland,” said Griffin. “This includes murals, sculptures and other works of art to capture the history and beauty of our community. This is only temporary but it will reflect community pride and hopefully open up everyone’s eyes to our beautiful community and our potential.”
The mural is part of a larger work of art called Elevate the East.
