Year of the Rabbit
Cleveland Public Art Project

February 2nd began the Year of the Rabbit on the Chinese calendar, and to celebrate, St. Clair Superior Development Corporation filled our community with a collection of public art pieces in honor of the Year of the Rabbit!

Local artists applied their talent & creativity to the fiberglass rabbit sculptures to create an assortment of unique pieces of public art. The Rabbits have been placed outside local business establishments in Cleveland, and will be auctioned in the Fall 2011.

Year of the Rabbit art on East 30th in Cleveland

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

This is the 6th year of the project with prior art honoring the Year of the Ox, Rat, Pig, Dog and Tiger.
