Thank you to all the amazing people we have met in Cleveland.  Before we started our tour back in April, we met with Stamy Paul from Graffiti Heart to talk about the possibility of doing a Greetings from Cleveland mural.  Five months later, with the additional help of Ohio City Inc. and Solo Block Club, we were able to make it a reality!

As soon as we arrived at the wall, we had a warm welcome from our new neighbor Tim Del Papa who was already expecting us.  It quickly gave us a sense of the community involvement of this project.  Across the street, local artist and gallery owner Loren Naji hooked us up with electricity, wi-fi and some free parking for the week.  We really got to know a lot of the Ohio City residents as they passed by everyday to chat and photograph the progress.

Collaborating with locals is one of the favorite parts of doing these murals.  Local tattoo artist Vic Savage helped paint a tribute to the RTA and DROIDS crew based in Cleveland. He painted the “A” in the greetings mural. Cleveland sign painter, Alan Giberson, did the lettering above the mural listing our sponsorships.
