When the Republican National Convention takes over Cleveland this summer, much of the activity will be downtown, heavily choreographed and under tight security. An art project launching today is showcasing tours of Cleveland that locals would like to give visitors if they had the chance.
The series of short films called 'The Fixers' began with a look at the Harvey Rice Wraparound school on Cleveland's east side. Here's a clip:
"Day in and day out it's hard to see, to step back and see, the vision of oh, this is really massive, and it really is making a change and a difference in this world, and this school, and this community."
Kate Sopko is the lead artist on The Fixers project. She spoke with ideastream's Tony Ganzer.
