Year of the Dragon Public Art

2012 is the Year of the Dragon on the Chinese calendar. To celebrate, St. Clair Superior Development Corporation filled our community with a collection of public art pieces in honor of the Year of the Dragon!

Local artists applied their talent & creativity to the fiberglass dragon sculptures to create an assortment of unique pieces of public art. The Dragons have been placed outside local business establishments in Cleveland, and will be auctioned in September.

Each artist was challenged and inspired by cultural influences, their personal history, and their own interpretation of the dragon as an object of art.

This is the 7th year of the project with prior art honoring the Year of the Rabbit, Ox, Rat, Pig, Dog and Tiger.

Browse photos of all the Dragons and then vote for your favorites.
