Rooms to Let: CLE

Rooms to Let: CLE

From houses to our historical commercial district; uplifting our neighborhood through art.

Traditionally set in vacant houses set for demolition, Rooms To Let: CLE is using 2022 to transform storefront spaces in the historic Broadway E 55th intersection! Working with local artists and business owners the project will use adapted temporary and semi-permanent art installations to beautify retail storefronts and grass lots.

On July 9-10th from 12pm-6pm visitors can walk Slavic Village to view outdoor visual installations and performances led by talented artists and community leaders.

We encourage visitors to stop by the event hub at the 5620 Broadway Ave to pick up a map and shop the Artist Market featuring local makers, bakers and more.  

Additionally, preceding the event, artists, community members, and volunteers will come together for beautification street clean-ups around the Broadway & E 55th intersection. Artists interested in transforming storefront and lot spaces will be selected by the curators through an open call for artists process.  

Rooms to Let: CLE offers a unique opportunity for the participating artists to interact with the community, bringing beauty and dialogue around the effects of the foreclosure crisis and how a neighborhood can positively evolve in the aftermath. Led by Slavic Village Development, Rooms to Let: CLE seeks to illuminate one of Cleveland’s most diverse and authentic neighborhoods, as it strives to strengthen a community in the midst of recovery.
