The Akron artist, a piece of Crayola chalk in hand, sketched the word “DREAM” about six-feet high on an outdoor wall. Inside each letter, Love then colored a bright blue sky with white clouds fading into purple night with twinkling stars.
The 37-year-old was inspired by poet Maya Angelou saying “be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud” and hoped to show off Northeast Ohio’s creative and peaceful side to the 50,000 people visiting Northeast Ohio during the Republican National Convention.

Less than 48 hours after he captured a bronze medal in the 800 meters at the Rio Olympics, Clayton Murphy pledged to continue to help raise the national profile of the University of Akron track and field program.

And for those homeowners looking to keep up their home’s curb appeal, solar shingles might be the perfect blend of efficiency and style.
