Slavic Village Better Block

The great thing about using kids’ finger paint for our street treatments at Better Block is that clean-up is easy. A good rain washes it away. The bad thing about using kids’ finger paint is that a good rain will wash it all away. This is why Better Block and community members from the Slavic Village neighborhood in Cleveland painted the Slavic Village Better Block street mural not once, not twice, but three times in three days.

Rain may have watched away the mural one day, but community members responded to re-paint the mural.


The street mural was part of the Slavic Village Better Block, which was funded by the Cleveland Foundation. The Slavic Village Better Block was meant to create a vibrant node and gathering place just off Fleet Ave
