A Season of Art Making at Heights Arts
Join in a season of art making at Heights Arts as we launch Make Your Mark for the ArtsTM, a new membership program for everyone to find the artist inside.
Created by Heights Arts, Make Your Mark (www.MakeYourMarkForTheArts.org) was founded on the belief that everyone has artistic ability. Residents of our communities participate in this public art program by creating their own stamp to represent themselves and then leaving an impression of this stamp (their mark) at participating businesses and organizations throughout greater Cleveland.
Make Your Markis a visual representation, celebration and archive of the individuals who make up our community.
Everyone is artistic, and Make Your Mark gives residents an opportunity to explore and showcase their creativity.
Make Your Markis all about bringing us closer together, engaging the individual parts of our community – residents, businesses, and civic organizations – in a collective program and purpose.
Make Your Mark celebrates progressive and diverse communities and aims to capture the energy and individual expression of residents. Let’s connect and share in a sense of purpose and community spirit through the arts!
Make Your Mark is for YOU as we strive to make our community a place where art is a part of our everyday lives.
Make Your Markis another example of Heights Arts’ leadership in community building – engaging the individual parts of our community – its residents, businesses and civic organizations – in a collective program and purpose.
Show your support for the arts and businesses in your community and join us in this fun and engaging program for the whole family. More information, including workshops for all ages and ways to connect with many local businesses can be found on our website, www.heightsarts.org, or by calling 216.371.3457.
In the gallery, Heights Arts presents Space Divided, featuring the abstract works of artists Drew King, David Masters and Nicole Schneider opening on Friday, June 13. Our cross-pollination of the arts continues with EKPHRASTACY and artist talks on Thursday, July 10. Spear-headed by Cleveland Heights Poet Laureate Kathleen Cerveny, EKPHRASTACY invites poets to compose poems that describe works of art in the exhibition.
Visit Heights Arts often this summer to see the flowers in bloom in the mini-park and (fingers-crossed) to play a piano in season two of our street piano project. Come inside the gallery to see the exhibitions and the artworks featured year-round by many of northeast Ohio’s top artists working in glass, ceramics and jewelry.
