Rooms to Let: CLE | Call for Artist

RTL-logo

Built upon the overwhelming success of the inaugural Rooms to Let: Cleveland last year, the innovative event will return to the Slavic Village neighborhood 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 purveyors.

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.

Interested artists should apply here. The deadline for submissions is March 20, 2015.

Rooms To Let: Cleveland is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.

Slavic Village Development is an entrepreneurial non-profit neighborhood redevelopment organization serving the Broadway Slavic Village neighborhood of Cleveland with over 30 years of experience in community development.
