- Final touches will be placed this week on the newly transformed public space at East 118th and Buckeye Road. The intersection underwent two months of landscape redesign including two murals from local artists, Chip Carter and Francisca Ugalde. They're part of a larger initiative by the Buckeye Area Development Corporation, Cleveland Public Art and ParkWorks to enhance and promote arts and culture within the district. This week, the second of two statues by artists Angelica Pozo (Cleveland) and James Simon (Pittsburgh) will be installed, just in time for the Art & Soul of Buckeye music festivals, which runs this weekend from July 11-13. For more pictures of the Buckeye neighborhood park, check out Cleveland Public Art's website here.
