Cleveland, OH 44106

5:30 – 6:30 pm:  Tour the new MOCA exhibit, “There Goes the Neighborhood”
6:30 – 8:00 pm:  A public, open-mic discussion of ideas about revitalizing Cleveland’s communities

There Goes the Neighborhood explores the evolution of communities here and abroad.  The exhibition focuses on how architecture and landscape embody a neighborhood’s past, present, and potential future.  The work on view examines places amid growth or decline, sites that hover somewhere between construction, deterioration, and renewal.  The artists reveal how physical sites symbolize the human experience of change, whether simple or complex, invited or forced.  Linking actual and anticipated shifts in communities across the globe, There Goes the Neighborhood emphasizes the evolving structures and compositions of neighborhoods in the twenty-first century.

This program is part of Building our Future Beyond Foreclosure.  This program is also in collaboration with the Cleveland Neighborhood Development Coalition.

Free and open to the public
