The Civic Art Program partnered with the Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors and artist team MobileMuralLab to tackle the graffiti problem at Dockweiler Beach. A popular location within Los Angeles County because of the fire pits and late hours, the beach faces the ongoing challenge of illegal graffiti tagging. The artist team held two public events at the beach to get to know the Dockweiler beachgoers. The resulting mural was a major collaboration with the public. By improving the appearance of the buildings and incorporating a contemporary style (including some glow-in-the-dark magic) that appeals to the public, tagging on the buildings has decreased and feedback from the public—all ages and backgrounds—has been positive.

September 2012: Cleveland Foundation

Apollo’s Fire, the Cleveland baroque orchestra, is one of a dozen organizations helped by the Cleveland Foundation’s Engaging the Future arts initiative. The three-year, $5-million program aims to help arts organizations attract younger and more diverse audiences while maintaining artistic excellence.

The Cleveland Foundation’s Creative Fusion program brings accomplished artists from around the world to Cleveland for extended periods of time. These artists are embedded within the city’s cultural institutions to facilitate the exchange of ideas and experiences. During her residency, Sevi Bayraktar, a Turkish “Roma,” or gypsy, dancer and choreographer, led more than 80 workshops and performances at elementary, middle, and high schools throughout Greater Cleveland. She also spent a significant part of her stay collaborating with MorrisonDance, a local modern dance company.
The Cleveland Metropolitan School District All-City Drum Line is part of the All-City Arts Program, an after-school and weekend program for district students designed to build on and extend the arts curriculum taught in the classroom. Here, students perform at the groundbreaking for Green City Growers, which will supply healthy lettuce and herbs from a large inner-city greenhouse. Green City Growers is one of the Evergreen Cooperatives, for-profit companies that hire low-income residents who then get the opportunity to become employee-owners. The cooperatives are the result of a unique collaboration among the City of Cleveland, the Cleveland Foundation, and large institutions that anchor University Circle. The companies are created to meet the procurement needs of these institutions – and keep a portion of their annual spending in the local economy.
Cleveland has a rich heritage in the performing arts, and the Cleveland Foundation has long supported arts and cultural organizations, large and small – from the Cleveland Play House and Playhouse Square in downtown Cleveland to Rabbit Run Theater and Lakeland Civic Theater in Lake and Geauga counties.
For more than 20 years, Parade the Circle – a colorful pageant of music, arts, and fun for all ages – kicks off summer in Cleveland. The Cleveland Museum of Art sponsors the annual parade, a free event that incorporates the drama and artistry of colorful floats, puppets, costumes, dancers, and musicians and draws about 70,000 people to the streets of University Circle. The Cleveland Foundation has supported the art museum’s recent efforts to extend the popular event to surrounding neighborhoods.
Duffy Liturgical Dance participates in Project Access, a Cleveland Foundation program that helps small nonprofits strengthen business skills. Duffy preserves and performs American Negro Spirituals, songs and dances created hundreds of years ago by African slaves in America, and includes dancers and singers of all ages.

Mari Mujica, El Miedo (The Fear), from the series "Latina Immigrants," 2011, digital photograph.

El miedo es que al buscar un trabajo no sabes si esa persona te va a ayudar o te va a entregar a migración. Otro es el miedo porque no sabes leer ni escribir. Entonces ese es el miedo que tenemos.

The fear is that in looking for a job one doesn't know if the person is going to help you or give you to immigration. The other fear is because you do not know how to read or write. Those are the fears that we have.

XXXXXX. Emigré de Guatemala a los 24 años.

Me encanta ayudar a las personas. Mi plan es lograr traer a mis otros hijos para tener a mi familia completa y salir adelante con las niñas y seguir trabajando y seguir ayudando a las personas. Estoy contenta de salir adelante con mis hijos. Me cuesta que soy mama y papá pero sé que puedo trabajar y salir adelante. Estoy contenta por eso.

Lo más dificil de ser una madre immigrante es que no puedes trabajar por no tener papeles y hablar ingles y no saber ni leer ni escribir. Estoy contenta de vivir en este pais porque la ayuda que recibí yo ahora se la puedo dar a las personas. Antes no sabía que yo podia ayudar. Ahora sí.

XXXXXX. Emigrated from Guatemala when I was 24.

Something I love to do is helping people. My dream is to be able to bring my other children to this country so that my family will be complete and I can come out ahead with my daughters. Although I am happy to have the opportunities provided to me and my family in this country, it is still difficult being a single parent and being both mother and father to my children.

The hardest thing about being an immigrant mother is not being able to work because you don't have documents, nor can you read, write, or speak English. I am happy that I live in this country because I have received lots of help and now I am able to help others. Before, I did not know this, that I could make a difference by helping others.

Mari Mujica, Candy, from the series "Latina Immigrants," 2011, digital photograph.

Jeraldin A. González (Candy), 28. Soy ama de casa.
Emigré de San Miguel el Alto, Jalisco, México a los 18 años.

Me encanta platicar. Mi mayor sueno es aprender el inglés. Mi familia, tengo dos princesas una de ocho anos y otra de cinco y son mi mayor felicidad.

Lo más difícil de ser una madre inmigrante es la diferencia de idioma, cultura que nuestros hijos reciben y es difícil comunicarse con ellas.

Lo que me mas me gusta de vivir en este país es que los niños pueden tener mejores oportunidades gracias a saber dos idiomas. Es contradictorio pero lo que es difícil creo que es una oportunidad para ellos.

Jeraldin A. González, 28. Housewife. Emigrated from San Miguel el Alto, Jalisco, México when I was 18.

Something I love to do is to chat with friends. Mi dream is to learn English. My family, I have two princesses one who is eight and another who is five. They are the source of my happiness.

The hardest thing about being an immigrant mother is the difference in language and the culture taught to our children, which makes it difficult for us to communicate with them. What I like the most about living in this country is that my children can have better opportunities since they are bilingual.

Mari Mujica, Para Ti Yo No Existo (For You I Don't Exist), from the series "Latina Immigrants," 2011, digital photograph.

I'm a woman. I'm an immigrant like you I have dreams, but you don't see them because for you I don't exist.
Soy una mujer. Soy una emigrante como tú tengo sueños pero tu no los vez porque para tí yo no existo.

XXXXXX, 40

Algo que me encanta hacer es comer, caminar en el parque, y bailar.
Algo que me gustaría decir acerca de mi y mi familia es que me gustaría tenerlos a todos juntos.

Lo más difícil de ser inmigrante es que tienes que trabajar el doble de duro para mostrar que eres capaz y que se puede depender de ti. Lo que más me gusta de vivir en este país es que aquí descubrí que soy una mujer fuerte, independiente, e inteligente.

XXXXXX, 40

I love to eat, to walk in the park, and to dance.
Something I'd like to say about my family and me is that I'd like to have them all together.

The hardest thing about being an immigrant woman is that you have to work twice as hard to show that you are capable and dependable. What I like the most about living in this country is that here I discovered the strong independent, and intelligent woman that I am.

The installation consists of six large liquid crystal display (LCD) screens that run horizontally in a glass wall above a librarian reference desk. Three omputers power the six screens. Like a stock exchange ticker – but using Library data received each hour from the Information Technology department – four electronically animated "visualizations" float across the six screens. Each visualization lasts between one to six minutes.

The second visualization is called "Floating Titles" and consists of the titles of books and other items patrons have checked out in the past hour. The titles enter the screens from the far right and slowly move toward the left until an entire hour's worth of materials have passed by. Book titles are red and DVDs, CDs and videos are green. Items checked out at the same time are close to each other. The vertical location of an item on the screen is determined by its Dewey Decimal number, with low Dewey Decimal numbers near the top and high Dewey Decimal numbers at the bottom.
