LAND studio Connects People to Places
It’s almost time to enjoy summer in the city. Whether dining al fresco on the sidewalk, walking to a baseball game, or spending evenings in a city park, connectivity and walkability make city living a pleasure. LAND studio, a non-profit focused on connecting people to places, is making artful spaces throughout Downtown Cleveland this summer.
Beginning in June, Downtown Cleveland visitors will be greeted by six species of creatures on Public Square, on the Malls, and in the Eastman Reading Garden at the Cleveland Public Library. The Cracking Art Group, based in Italy and recruited by LAND studio, will install more than 300 creatures throughout the spaces for a fun, friendly connection that will also serve as a perfect photo opportunity.
For over 10 years, LAND studio has been involved in the revitalization of Pubic Square that will reopen in time to welcome visitors for the Republican National Convention in July. The new space will be more than Clevelanders hoped for: a welcoming, vibrant greenspace in the heart of Downtown. Make sure to catch a movie night, eat at the café, or simply watch the world go by for an afternoon in the park.
If you think you heard a guitar riff while strolling down East 9th Street, you weren’t just imagining it – you are experiencing ROCK BOX, a series of interactive permanent outdoor speakers that will be installed along the East 9th corridor, also known as Rock and Roll Boulevard. LAND studio partnered with The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and Destination Cleveland on ROCK BOX to celebrate Cleveland’s rock and roll legacy. The project was designed by Mark A. Reigelman II, a Cleveland native and graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art.
LAND studio is connecting the spaces between the places through bringing public art and quality urban greenspaces to the heart of Downtown. For more information, visit LAND studio’s website at land-studio.org
