We aim to connect these two groups by providing the public with both ticketed and free events as well as ongoing exhibitions and the year-round art and gift store. These programs support new and returning artists while engaging a wide-ranging audience. It’s a win, win! Local Musicians, Poets, and Visual Artists: join us in satisfying Cleveland Heights’ craving for the arts!

Below are the current open calls.
