LAND studio developed out of a merger between ParkWorks, which had been cleaning public spaces, and Cleveland Public Art, which beautified those spaces. Now, operating together as LAND studio, the team helps community groups, government agencies, artists, and local businesses organize and raise funds to execute collaborative plans that shape Cleveland's public spaces in innovative ways. Projects supported by LAND studio include the Public Square redesign, which will make the historical downtown space a more attractive destination for families and workers, and ParkArts, which provides summer arts programs for thousands of children and their parents throughout Cleveland's neighborhood parks.
