Every day, artists are investing in the future of Cuyahoga County - from the architect transforming an urban neighborhood to the filmmaker in the middle of a groundbreaking feature. They’re strengthening the face of our economy, our education system, and our community’s quality of life.
And now the Community Partnership for Arts and Culture is investing directly in the future of these community champions.
