Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, June 14, 2019 – Collide: Cuyahoga Falls plans to host the kick-off event for this year’s celebration of The Prism Project: Awakening Cuyahoga Falls through Art, a project dedicated to taking art beyond the walls of museums. A variety of artwork from several artists will find temporary homes within local businesses for residents and visitors to enjoy.
The idea for The Prism Project began at an “On the Table” event Western Reserve Hospital hosted in the fall of 2018, when community members expressed their desire for more inclusion and diversity. Collide then applied for and was selected to receive an Akron Community Foundation grant to help facilitate the project.
"COLLIDE: Cuyahoga Falls is honored to have been selected as a recipient for Akron Community Foundation's On the Table Community Impact Awards grants! This funding is allowing us to share unique works from a diverse group of artists,” said Kathy Romito, Community Relations Manager at Western Reserve Hospital.
The kick-off event is scheduled for Sunday, June 30 from 12 – 2 p.m. at HiHO Brewing Company located at 1707 Front Street in Cuyahoga Falls. Maps will be provided for viewers to travel around downtown Cuyahoga Falls and see the loaned art on display.
Art will be on display throughout the month of July at the following businesses:
