THE STORY:

In celebration of the Centennial of the Shaker Heights Fire Department and the 10-year anniversary of the Fire House, a unique public art project is planned on Chagrin Boulevard near Lee Road. The project will include participation of the Shaker Heights elementary schools. A sculpture or mural will be installed in a Pocket Park steps from the Fire House. Within this park, with its greenery, landscaping, benches and brick wall face, the art will create a welcoming environment for residents and a fitting tribute to 100 years of fire service in our community. A call for proposals to artists in Northeast Ohio will be issued in September 2015 with installation by summer 2016. Funds will cover the cost of materials, design and construction of the artwork, and a community celebration!

Who is Leslye Arian and why should I send her money?

Leslye is a community activist and working artist who collaborates on new art initiatives in partnership with the City of Shaker Heights, as well as other local arts organizations. She received a BFA in Ceramics and Painting from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1976. Carried by a wave of innovation in the field of computer graphic messaging, Leslye became the first woman owner of a signage company, Architectural Communications, Inc, in 1981. After the arrival of her second child in 1989, she sold her company, but continued to rely on her ability to think creatively, working for non-profit agencies and organizations where she could continue to impact positive change: The Cleveland Jewish News, Montefiore, Menorah Park, National Council of Jewish Women, and Habitat for Humanity Cleveland. She has now committed her considerable energies to a resumption of her first and beloved career as an artist and community advocate for the arts.
