Rooms to Let: Cleveland Returns to Broadway Slavic Village


Built upon the overwhelming success of the inaugural Rooms to Let: Cleveland last year, the innovative event will return to Slavic Village on Saturday, May 16th and Sunday, May 17th, 2015.  Artists will create a temporary art exhibition using vacant homes as their medium. The event, free and open to the public, will also include a neighborhood block party with live music, hands-on art activities and local food.

Led by Slavic Village Development, Rooms to Let: Cleveland seeks to continue the conversation around vacancy and the plight of Cleveland’s historic neighborhoods in the wake of the foreclosure crisis. This year’s event will expand this dialogue to a new group of visual and performance artists to further interpret the evolution of community and recovery.

Artists interested in transforming spaces in three vacant homes in Broadway Slavic Village will be selected by curators, Sai Sinbondit (Designer at Bialosky+Partner Architects and faculty at Cleveland Institute of Art) Amy Krusinski Sinbondit (ceramics/sculpture artist and Technical Specialist/Adjunct Faculty at Cleveland Institute of Art), Dana DePew (artist), Rian Brown (filmmaker, video artist and Associate Professor of Cinema Studies and New Media at Oberlin College) and Scott Pickering (artist).

In order to grow the event, we need to raise $5,000!
