MAIN AVENUE BRIDGE | $95
CLEVELAND: THE CITY OF BRIDGES. The Main Avenue Bridge, or Harold H. Burton Memorial Bridge, is a cantilever truss bridge carrying Ohio State Route 2 over the Cuyahoga River. Replacing an 1869 bridge at the same site, it was completed in 1939 as part of the Cleveland Memorial Shoreway. The Main Avenue Bridge was the longest bridge in the state of Ohio (that title was taken away when Toledo's Veteran's Glass City Skyway opened in 2007) & in 1986 was named for the 45th Mayor of Cleveland. The slick blue metal lines create a canopy over the cityscape in this piece.

ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Throughout its rich history as a bustling rust belt city, the need for bridges to cross the Cuyahoga River in order to connect with the rest of the nation resulted in over 330 bridges in the immediate Cleveland area. Original photography & graphic art collide with the collection Bridges, featuring five of the most important & aesthetically interesting bridges that remain in operation today; including swing, lift, railroad, & truss bridges. Each piece highlights one of these landmark bridges, amped up in color & contrasted against its surroundings, which are simplified to neutral black & white sketches.
Printed on canvas & stretched over a wood frame, this collection eliminates the need for traditional framing because the image wraps completely around all edges (but they come in the frame-friendly size of 11"x14" just in case).
