Arts & Culture

With resident artists, local music groups, museums and theater groups, Cleveland is the perfect place to experience amazing artwork, listen to some music or see a show. What are you going to do today?

One stroll along the greenway or through the campus at Lee University and you will see that we have a deep love for the arts in Cleveland.  Attend a summer youth art program or let your inner artist out by participating in our annual Chalk the Walk event. Stop by the Museum Center at 5ive Points and see the Cherokee Chieftain, carved from a tree along Parker Street by widely-acclaimed sculptor Peter Wolf Toth. Visit one of our local art studios or attend a show. You will be amazed at the talent in our community.

Visit our Allied Arts Facebook page or our community calendar for a list of upcoming events.
