The Sparx in the City program changes hands


Environmental artist Susie Frazier Mueller has turned over ownership of her Sparx in the City program to the Downtown Cleveland Alliance. Created five years ago, Sparx has been giving downtown streets a summertime jolt of energy with eclectic, open-air performances by stiltwalkers, beat-boxers, and Argentine tango dancers. It peaks in September with the Gallery Hop. Mueller will now hang at Cleveland Public Art and the Detroit-Shoreway Community Development Corporation this summer to engineer a $3 million streetscape design in the Gordon Square art district on Detroit Avenue. — Cris Glaser
