On the occasion of its 60th anniversary
The Cleveland Arts Prize, in partnership with
The Cleveland History Center, recognizes
sixty creative artists from Cleveland and Northeast Ohio
whose extraordinary contributions to the arts
in the years before the Arts Prize existed
enriched our community’s, and the nation’s, life.





About Us

There were great writers, artists, composers, architects and designers, as well as memorable figures of stage and screen  doing remarkable things here well before there was a Cleveland Arts Prize. We have seized upon the occasion of CAP’s 60th anniversary to honor our past winners and shine a spotlight on these extraordinary individuals who contributed so notably to the region’s—and larger world’s—culture.
