Cleveland Heights’ FOCUS Magazine Seeks Artists, Content



Heights Arts is happy to announce that The City of Cleveland Heights is reinstating its Arts pages in FOCUS Magazine in quarterly issues.

The publication is delivered to every resident of Cleveland Heights, so Heights Arts is excited that the arts will be featured so prominently – creating equitable access to the rich arts programming in our community. Heights Arts has been in discussion with the City to include several sections – one for local arts organizations to list their events, one for businesses who will be presenting arts events, and one to feature local artists.

Those interested in contributing to an upcoming edition of FOCUS can see below for additional submission information.


The next issue of FOCUS will cover events from 02/01/24  thru 04/30/24. The deadline to submit information for this issue is December 18, 2023.
