1 comment

Gary and Laura Dumm's long awaited mural series "A Love Letter to Cleveland" will be unveiled at 5 p.m. Tuesday at the Orange Blossom Press building on Cleveland's West Side.

The three murals, each measuring eight feet tall and up to 28 feet wide, commemorate the forces that helped shape our beloved city and include depictions of Harvey Pekar, Halle Berry, Ghoulardi, Dorothy Fuldheim, Eliot Ness, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, and the likes.

The Dumms provided us with this photograph to give readers a sneak peek of what to expect at Tuesday's event. It includes a blurred out *surprise panel* which will be unveiled at the ceremony.

(If you absolutely cannot wait 'til Tuesday, check out these photos in last week's PD- You may spot a truly super hint.)

Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson and Councilman Joe Cimperman will also be present on unveiling day. Delicious snacks will be provided.
