Submissions are now being accepted for the Year of the Rat public art project!


St. Clair Superior Development Corporation welcomes the
2008 Year of the Rat celebration!

We are looking for local artists to apply their talent and creativity to fiberglass sculptures, which will be placed outside local business establishments around Cleveland, and will be auctioned in the Fall 2008!

To make each rat a unique work of art, each artist is challenged and inspired by cultural influences, their personal history, and their own interpretation of the rat as an object of art.
