Rooms to Let: Cleveland Returns to Broadway Slavic Village
Built upon last year’s overwhelming success, Rooms to Let: Cleveland returns to Slavic Village Saturday, May 16 and Sunday, May 17, 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 continues the conversation about 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).
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 experience in community development.
