After years of uncertainty, artist Matthew Hunt has been fully paid for his Dennis Kucinich mayoral portrait, which he finished in 2014. The painting may at last grace the Mayor’s Red Room at City Hall, where Kucinich is the only modern mayor in Cleveland’s history not to have his portrait on display.
Hunt, of Akron, delivered the painting to Cleveland’s M Gentile Studios in January. Together with the AFL-CIO’s Harriet Applegate, he selected a frame for the portrait.
