Local art

“Cleveland as a Pig”, chalk on cement. Artist unknown.

Possible interpretations: Perhaps Cleveland is a spy or a camouflage artist. Maybe he has duel personalities, or is a trickster.

Or maybe he just doesn’t know who he is.

What do you think?

If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

chalk dog,
you're a city The Pretenders sang
was gone
when they woke -
so why
did you surface
through a young boy's
as ambiguous
stop painting our walks
& we'll erase
the chalk zoo
you fled from in a white

Very curious (but fun!) artwork. And you're right - so many ways to interpret this. Will the real Cleveland please reveal yourself!

Thank you, Anon. Maybe we should flee the chalk city ;)

Yes, Katie, we'll have to see if the real Cleveland decides to come out!
