Cleveland’s Sculpture Center is a unique not-for-profit institution that is devoted to developing the careers of artists and sculptors in the state of Ohio. It was founded by sculptor David E. Davis in 1989, occupying a storefront gallery on Cleveland’s historic Euclid Avenue. Exhibitions here change by season; the fall features sculpture and installations by mid-career artists, winter and spring are devoted to developing sculptors early in their careers, and the summer features a juried exhibition of small sculpture by area artists.
In addition to exhibiting the work of hundreds of local artists, presenting workshops and facilitating apprenticeships between students and established artists, the Sculpture Center received federal funds to catalogue all pieces of outdoor sculpture in northern Ohio. The Sculpture Center also engages in conservation of many of those works, all of which are located in Cuyahoga County.
