Kentucky School (former) – Cleveland OH

Description

Privatized in 2011 and now called Near West Intergenerational School.

“On the near west side of Cleveland, we can still see some of the still bearing fruit of Mr. Roosevelt’s New Deal. The Kentucky School (Paul Dunbar temporary) is still up. Its cornerstone reads, ‘1939’; a product of the Public Works Administration, one of the many new government agencies that saved the US from becoming a third world country…

On the other corner of the Kentucky School alongside West 38th is an allegorical female figure with flowing hair, kneeling amongst plants, holding a tablet, with a river crossing her lap, and the sphere of the earth, and a star behind her. It is a bas-relief on several blocks in a late deco style.”
