About Our Program

Welcome to the virtual home of the Fieldhouse Art Mural Program at Studio West 117! This program is rooted in the power of visual art to help create inclusive environments that amplify LGBTQ+ voices. The Fieldhouse Art Mural Program totals over 9,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor murals and public art adding vibrancy and visual expression to a space that was created by and for the LGBTQ+ community and allies. The first program of its kind, it features LGBTQ+ identifying artists from Cleveland and beyond.

Phase One of the Art Mural Program was successfully completed thanks to the generous support from The Char and Chuck Fowler Family Foundation. Phase One includes murals in the Gymnasium, a facility that will host an LGBTQ+ Youth Sports League, Stonewall Sports Dodgeball, as well as numerous community and private events. Phase Two of the Art Mural Program includes remaining murals of the Fieldhouse at Studio West. This will include the Courtyard, restaurant and bar spaces, and additional locations that encourage physical activity and well-being.
