2016 Annual Report

Public Spaces Matthew Pillsbury

The reopening of a totally renovated Public Square in 2016 prompted The George Gund Foundation to commission esteemed photographer Matthew Pillsbury to picture many of Cleveland’s public spaces through his imaginative use of long exposures. In this series of photographs he portrays a sampling of the city’s successful and not-so-successful gathering places, perhaps sparking consideration of the difference but certainly elevating appreciation for these grounds that Clevelanders have in common.
