“You are doing awesome stuff for our neighborhood – keep it up!” says Cleveland resident, Linda Zolten Wood on the Zoetic Walls Facebook page.

Organizer Nick Marzullo explains the new piece by Nanook that is firmly rooted in local history and politics.

“Nanook worked closely with the neighborhood on the development of his piece depicting a portrait of Carl Stokes, the former Cleveland Mayor and first Black mayor of any major city in US,” says Nick. Other symbols include the hand of city planning practitioner Norman Krumholz as he guides a car along a modernized highway system, something Krumholz is credited with bringing through the City of Cleveland.

Gaia’s barbershop pieces came out great and Mike from the barbershop is pretty psyched for the facelift in an old-skool airbrush style. Now if they can just fix that canopy, the 10th anniversary of Mike n Syd’s will be officially slammin’!
