Where Are Artists?

The most basic way to understand the location decisions of artists is to see where they are currently living by pinpointing their current addresses on a map.  The database of 4,016 individual artist addresses was used to geocode or map their locations.  After completing this, Northern Ohio Data and Information Service (NODIS) and CPAC staff used a block group level map of the number of artists and artists per adult population (based on 2000 Census data), along with Geographic neighborhoods in the county.

The twenty-four artists neighborhoods are listed below and shown in the following maps.

Asiatown / St. Clair-Superior Forest Hill
Baldwin Wallace / Berea Kamm’s Corners
Buckeye-Shaker Square-Larchmere Lakewood
