young artists beautify graffiti-tagged corner in ohio city

A group of teenage artists have cleaned up graffiti, added a fresh coat of paint and installed a large, colorful mural entitled “Waterworks” on a long vacant gas station at West 45th and Detroit Avenue in Ohio City. The artwork, which was created by the nonprofit Building Bridges Arts Collaborative, aims to raise awareness of water pollution issues in Cleveland and create job opportunities for local youth.
