Cathedral Square will once again serve as an Exhibition Center for ArtPrize providing a unique,inviting and thoughtful viewing environment for the work of a number of artists in a variety of mediums. Located in the Heartside Neighborhood near the intersection of Wealthy Street and Division Avenue and anchored by the 125-year old Cathedral of Saint Andrew,Cathedral Square is an 11.5 acre park-like area in which both indoor and outdoor exhibition space is available. The square's gardens are beautifully landscaped and welcome guests to meander on the pedestrian-friendly, winding walk ways.Cathedral Square includes the cathedral, Cathedral Square Center/Wege Conference Center,the Catholic Information Center,Central High School,Keeler Plaza, Wege Gardens, the Maple Street Improvement Plan campus, and the Piazza Secchia.Reminiscent of a European square where people gather for religious and community celebrations, Piazza Secchia is modeled after Michelangelo's Piazza del Campidoglio in Rome.
We are a Heartside church that has a very open floor plan that worked well for Artprize 2009 and 2010. This year we will be exhibiting the artwork of up to 20 artists, and hope to have 1 large muralist, for outside display. We look forward to any and all art.
