Rooms To Let: CLE Re-imagines Vacancy on Fleet

The final weekend of July, the fifth generation of Rooms to Let: CLE highlighted the resourceful nature of Slavic Village by transforming three vacant houses into temporary art museums – room by room. 80 artists were led by curators Scott Pickering, Dana Depew and the Visit Arts Collective to reimagine two houses on Fleet Ave and one on Forman, all of which are slated for demolition. Over 3,000 visitors came out to view and interact with the visual art installations which were supplemented by live music and dance performances. Once again, the innovative out-of-the-box creations wowed attendees as they turned kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, staircases and more into thought provoking works of art.

The event headquarters popped up at the Lavender Garden on Sebert Ave which hosted hands on art activities, an artist market, delicious food, and live music. Additionally, preceding the event artists, community members, and volunteers will came together for a Rooms To Let street clean-up in the Warszawa District, a housing fix-a-thon where two houses received cosmetic and structural improvements, and a community art project Led by the Better Block Foundation to further improve the neighborhood landscape at the intersection of East 65th and Fleet Avenue.

 

Rooms To Let: CLE is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture. And in partnership with the Cuyahoga Land Bank, Neighborhood Connections, Third Federal Savings & Loan, and Enterprise Community Partners. Additional Sponsorship opportunities are available.
