Artist Mark A. Reigelman II
Mark A. Reigelman II was commissioned to design decorative planters as part of the multi-million dollar Euclid Corridor Project. The shape of the planters animates the ridged streetscape and the design suggests the paper wrapping that surrounds a bouquet of flowers purchased from a street vendor. “I wanted to offer every Cleveland pedestrian a fresh bouquet of flowers,” says Reigelman. The planters are designed for seasonal plantings that enhance the visual character of Euclid Avenue in downtown Cleveland. Through its ongoing downtown beautification programme, LAND studio has taken the lead on the design and installation of the plantings. There are over 200 wrap planters currently in Downtown Cleveland. The planters are made of steel reinforced concrete and are approximately 4’ in height and weight almost 1,500 lbs.
