This year is the year we complete our budget for our historical marker and launch our indiegogo funding campaign!
Let's get you upto speed -
Summer of 2013 We met with The City of Cleveland Department of Landscape Committee after countless months of over night work making our presentation with fellow historian Jessica W. and
Ohio Burlesque Director Bella Sin.
We managed to received an appointment to be placed on the schedule for the city to review our project. The very meeting it self was nerve wracking but worth every moment.
What was next?
Funding; The marker will be an independent structure with need of maintenance and if ever defaced we would need a replacement. Ordering two markers would be the best corse of action but another big expense would be in the installment of the marker. They (installation company) would to dig 10 feet in to the grown pending the (Oops) crews evaluation of the site to make sure no wiring or other under ground blocks are in the area where we would like to put the marker.
Above you can see the mock up of the marker in the corner of E 9th and Vincent Street to your left is the paper work we prepared for the meeting .
How big is the marker and what is it made of?
The marker is made by a company called Sewah Studios Inc and it's made from Cast Bronze and it's dimensions are 39" Height x 43" W and what holds it is an Aluminum pole that is about 7"-10".
Below is our presentation.
