Every year The Gund Foundation commissions a photographer to highlight a Foundation priority or area of interest for its annual report. These artists have captured insights into our commitment to the revitalization of Cleveland’s neighborhoods, our longstanding concerns for improving public education and many other issues. These photo essays both portray our areas of engagement and serve on their own as notable examples of our desire to support the arts. Although the Foundation has published an annual report for many years, only the reports that feature these essays are included on this site.
The first 12 years of photographs were compiled in a book, “A City Seen,” for the Foundation’s celebration of its 50th anniversary.
