Waterloo Arts is pleased to launch The Green Palette, a seasonal public art project engaging artists and community members to revitalize the planter beds along Waterloo Road. Sign up via this form to receive updates and get involved in the project!
We are so excited to invite the Collinwood community and wider public to sign up for The Green Palette, a community engagement program focused on reimagining the planter beds along Waterloo Road. Participants in this free program will learn about horticulture and urban farming and work in teams to design and plant micro-gardens in one or more beds. Waterloo Arts will provide tools, a budget for plants, hired community garden mentors to provide consultation, and other support to help participants realize their vision. The program also includes a monthly webinar series running from January to August, which is open to all, and which covers topics ranging from gardening tips for the NE Ohio climate to the social impacts of urban agriculture.
By signing up via this form, you will receive regular updates about the program, including the webinar dates and the schedule for working on the planter beds.
The first event is a Zoom webinar featuring speakers from the Cuyahoga Soil and Water Conservation District on Thursday, January 28, at 6PM. Sign up to receive the Zoom link!
By involving local artists and community voices at all stages of the project, Waterloo Arts seeks to bring people together to reimagine even the humblest of spaces as sites for care and creativity. The diversity of plantings and bed design will be celebrated and highlighted throughout the year, most notably during the 2021 Waterloo Arts Fest.
Waterloo Arts is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture. The program of Waterloo Arts is made possible in part by state tax dollars allocated by the Ohio Legislature to the Ohio Arts Council (OAC). The OAC is a state agency that funds and supports quality arts experiences to strengthen Ohio communities culturally, educationally, and economically.
