Last weekend, May 21-22, OCDCA member Slavic Village Development Corporation in the Slavic Village neighborhood of Cleveland held their annual Rooms to Let. The organization released an RFP for local artists to utilize four houses on E. 54th Street, known to many as the epicenter of the foreclosure crisis. These four houses were transformed using installation and performance art, many of which was interactive and inclusive for the community.
Two of the houses are slated for demolition, while another one is set to be resold by Slavic Village Recovery. The fourth’s future is yet to be determined.
FreshWater Cleveland’s Bob Perkoski did a great photo feature of last weekend’s project. Check it out here.
