On July 28th and 29th 2018, the next generation of Rooms to Let: CLE kicked off its fifth year of transforming Slavic Village houses with innovative art installations. Led by Slavic Village Development Corporation, Rooms to Let: CLE seeks to illuminate one of Cleveland’s most diverse and authentic neighborhoods, as it strives to strengthen a community in the midst of recovery with extraordinary displays of art. Dozens of local artists and makers will create one-of-a-kind works in three vacant homes slated for demolition by the Cuyahoga Land Bank.
In addition to houses, vacant lots were transformed with art installations. An event headquarters was located in the Slavic Village Lavender Garden on Sebert Avenue, where attendees enjoyed live music, food, and hands-on art activities in an effort to give attendees an opportunity to construct their own art.
Rooms To Let: CLE is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture and in partnership with the Cuyahoga Land Bank.
