Public Art & Culture Program

Leaders of Today's Public Art & Culture (PAC) Program is a six month cohort project designed for Lorain County high school students to build leadership and creativity by transforming public spaces through the power of art. 

Students submit mediums of art that express at least one of the below themes: 

Unity/Non-Violence, Community Pride, Positive Mental Health, Racial Equity  

Leaders of Today, The Elyria Public Library System, and the Elyria Arts Council unveiled a new mural on the rear outside wall of the South Branch Library on Saturday, June 24, 2023.

The project was part of Leaders of Today’s PAC Program, which brought to life ideas from local students in collaboration with Cleveland Mural Company artist Chad Fedorovich.


Students met with Federovich and volunteers from the Elyria Arts Council to paint the mural — with the entire process from conception to the mural dedication taking about six months. The mural was designed to raise Positive Mental Health awareness.
