Art House: Bringing Books to Life


As part of Art House’s mission, we strive to make art accessible to children and adults throughout Cleveland. Art House outreach programs have been a part of several unique projects around the city, including a partnership with Literary Lots, a free, two-week, open camp in Ohio City.


The brainchild of Kauser Razvi, Literary Lots brings the power of imagination to urban kids by turning vacant, underused spaces into life-size scenes from children’s books. Because of its success, Literary Lots is expanding, offering an extra week of programs and adding a second location on the east side. This year’s theme focuses on water, inspiring new projects that are sure to be fun and exciting. Artists will lead several workshops in clay, printmaking, mixed media drawing, and painting. We will also help create a public mural, and assist with the program’s family dinner and movie nights.


We are delighted to work with the Cleveland Public Library to bring this program to life. We strongly encourage families (and even adults without children) to visit Carnegie Library on Fulton Avenue to experience the magic of this program first hand. The program runs July 16th through August 16th, 2014.


Literary Lots is open to all Cleveland residents. For more information and to register for specific AH sessions, visit our website at
