“Rooms to Let: CLE” breathes new life into old houses

Now in its fifth year, "Rooms To Let: CLE" is an art show that transforms vacant houses into impromptu art galleries. Dozens of local artists work together, creating site-specific work housed in properties slated for demolition.

Now in its fifth year, “Rooms To Let: CLE” is an art show that transforms vacant houses into impromptu art galleries. Dozens of local artists work together, creating site-specific work housed in properties slated for demolition.

Rooms To Let homes from previous years have featured such home re-imaginings as an attic turned into a walk in the clouds, a kitchen filled with ice cream, and a basement where the plumbing was one huge musical instrument.┬áThis year’s artists have been selected by a panel of judges, and the event is spearheaded by the Slavic Village Department.

The event is free of charge, and the show will be taking place on three separate streets. Guests should first head to the event’s check-in location at 6520 Sebert Ave, Cleveland, at the Slovic Village Lavender Garden for a complete map and touring suggestions. The event runs annually during the month of July.
