Rooms to Let: CLE returns to Slavic Village for a third year becoming one of Cleveland’s “can’t miss” spring events!
On May 21st and 22nd, 2016 the next generation of Rooms To Let: CLE will transform E. 54th Street in Slavic Village as the installation returns to the neighborhood for a third year. Led by Slavic Village Development, Rooms to Let seeks to re-envision one of Cleveland’s most diverse and authentic neighborhoods, as it illuminates a passionate community in the midst of recovery. Dozens of artists and makers will create works in vacant homes– some of which are slated for demolition as well as in those that will be rehabilitated.
New this year, a maker’s house will be the setting for “makers” and “tinkerers” who will help visitors create their own works using 3-D printing, CNC tooling, metalworking, woodworking, cooking, baking, clothing and coding. Hands-on art activities sponsored by Broadway School of Music and the Arts (build and decorate your dream house in miniature with artist Hector Castellanos) and Zygote Press Mobile Press, PLAN of NE Ohio and Augustus Turner-Member Artist of Kings & Queens of Art.
