Free Subway Tours and Sketching

Hey everybody - it has been a long time since my last post. Summer is going well. There are tons of things to do this weekend with Independence Day and all. One of the hidden tours in Cleveland that not many people have heard of is the free subway tour of the Detroit Superior Bridge.

Three times a year the Cuyahoga County Engineers open up the lower level of the Detroit Superior Bridge to the public. This used to be the place that street cars would use to travel across the river, while traffic passed overhead. This space offers some of the most unique views of the city and is a great environment to draw in....tell your friends and bring them down this Saturday for a great time.

IMPORTANT: This Saturday (July 5th), we will be changing our meeting location for the sketch crawl to take advantage of this free tour. We will meet at the Northeast Corner of W.25th and Detoit Rd., at the west end of the bridge. We will meet at the funky public art installment right at the corner of 25th and Detroit. We will not be meeting at the Arcade like we normally do.

We will start our Sketch Crawl at the same time....10am and end at 12noon. If you arrive late and we have left the corner of W.25th and Detroit, we will be at the center of the lower level (over the metal mesh) at 11am. That way you can reconnect with the group. Feel free to stay as long as you like. The lower level of the bridge is open until 3pm.

If you have any questions...feel free to call 216-736-7799 and ask for Josh Taylor
