Heights Arts, the multi-disciplinary community arts organization based in Cleveland Heights, is partnering with University Hospitals (UH) to showcase Heights-area visual artists as part of its 20th-anniversary celebration of connecting the arts with the community.
The Heights Artist Showcase UH exhibition features about a dozen artists who live and work in the Heights area. “This project exemplifies some of the reasons Heights Arts was founded in the first place 20 years ago,” says Greg Donley, chair of the Heights Arts exhibition community team. “This area has long been home to a lot of working artists and musicians and arts professionals, and the proximity of University Circle is a big reason for that concentration. We’re grateful to have this opportunity to showcase the work of just a few of our visual artists at the Trudy Wiesenberger Gallery, and we hope that the exhibition will help brighten the days (and nights, since the UH gallery is open 24 hours) of visitors to the hospital over these next few months.”
The exhibit is located on the first floor of the Humphrey building adjacent to the Lerner Tower. The gallery is currently open to the public with the usual COVID-19 protocols, but circumstances continue to evolve, so anyone planning to visit should first check www.uhhospitals.org for details.
The exhibit will run from mid-November through mid-February.
