We see contemporary sculptures like the Free Stamp, Portal and Sky Blossoms, statues of historical figures like Jesse Owens, Alexander Hamilton and Tom Johnson and fantastic pieces that you may have never noticed before. Artists include Pae White, Karl Bitter, Daniel Chester French, Timothy Schmalz and Henry Hering to name a few.
And when permitted, it will include a stop inside the Cuyahoga County Courthouse to look at some of the fantastic art inside. This inside stop will require you to pass through a metal detector.
