2018 Rooms to Let in Cleveland, Ohio
July 2018 I joined the Slavic Village Community Organization’s neighborhood initiative: Rooms to Let. Each year this neighborhood selects three run-down houses throughout the community that a collective of artists takeover– later in the year each of these homes gets demolished.
Artistic Mission: Transforming vacant houses set for demolition into innovative, walkable installations of art. Creating temporary beauty where destruction is inevitable.
Completed Piece: 12 ft. x 12 ft.
Goals of the Project:
1) Take active steps each year to remove vacant homes within the neighborhood– helping to decrease crimes of opportunity
2) Create a celebratory, artistic event the community can rally around and participate in as the neighborhood rediscovers itself
