  "Cleveland Ox" Cleveland City Hall.
Year of the Ox St. Clair Superior Development

Since 2008, JoAnn has been involved in fabricating and painting sculptures representing the Chinese zodiac for the St. Clair Superior Development Corporation in Cleveland. Each year artists are selected from submitted proposals to create their artistic vision for the 30" x 38" sized sculptures which are sponsored by local companies and organizations. The finished sculptures are placed on view throughout the Cleveland area until they are auctioned to benefit the advancement of additional public arts projects.  In 2008, DePolo painted Scat Rat sponsored by Dominion East Ohio. In 2009, three of her designs were selected...Cleveland Ox sponsored by Councilman Joe Cimperman, Foxy Ox from Fort Knox sponsored by Dominion East Ohio and collaborated in the design and Joxen Pollock sponsored by Sampson Carnegie Advertising and Promotions. 2010 Year of the Tiger JoAnn created "Green Ti-Gore" sponsored by St. Martin Deporres School. JoAnn had a great time creating these sculptures and wanted to share them with you...perhaps you have seen some of these around town!
