On May 21st and 22nd, 2016 from 12:00 – 5:00 p.m., the next generation of Rooms To Let: CLE will transform E. 54th Street in Slavic Village as the installation returns to the neighborhood for a third year. Led by Slavic Village Development, Rooms to Let seeks to re-envision one of Cleveland’s most diverse and authentic neighborhoods, as it illuminates a passionate community in the midst of recovery. Dozens of artists and makers will create works in vacant homes– some of which are slated for demolition as well as in those that will be rehabilitated. The event is free and open to the public.
On Saturday, May 21st at 6:00 p.m., neighbors and visitors are invited to a Community Meet & Greet with RTL artists to share feedback and reflections about RTL.
