is the largest art and design complex in Northeast Ohio, featuring 170,000 square feet of art galleries, artist studios, design showrooms, and other creative spaces all under one roof. Primarily known as an attraction for fine art, 78th Street Studios has also become known as an incubator for businesses in the fields of product design, publishing, music and special events. All viewing hours listed below are free and open to the public.
Every Friday from 11 am to 4 pm, visitors are invited to explore the open galleries. The format of the weekly OPEN HOUSE is relaxed and intimate. Typically 4 to 8 galleries are open during this time, but visitors can discover various aspects of the property without the larger crowds of the popular monthly art walk.
Our art walk began eight years ago as a quarterly event among three galleries pulling a few hundred people, it is now called THIRD FRIDAYS a monthly attraction drawing 1100 -1500 visitors who come from all over Ohio and neighboring states.
The Third Friday open house event is from 5pm to 9pm. When you attend, you can enjoy compelling installations in the permanent galleries, delicious food provided by the Touch Supper Truck and Local West, a pop-up artisan market of temporary exhibits, and live music on the 3rd floor after 9 pm. Experience a cool, retail adventure with your friends, interact with dozens of artists and designers, and discover authentic art, furniture and gifts made from the creative people of Cleveland.
WATCH IT WEDNESDAYS is a monthly art-making mash up where the creative process is the main attraction, not the finished product. Friends, corporate groups, and tourists gain rare, behind-the-scenes access into the experimental world of about 15 Cleveland artists on the first floor as they work on their latest masterpieces before your eyes. Enjoy ambient down-tempo beats on the sound system, vibe out with the artists, ask questions about technique, and wander without the massive crowds of THIRD FRIDAYS. Includes 1 complimentary drink ticket and an artist-made gift to take home. Food & beverages available from Local West.

Amendment Project: Here in Cleveland, nature will incorporate 3,000 toxic acres of vacant post-industrial space back into the eco-system. Most often these desecrated second-hand spaces are in urban communities. The Amendment Projects are small-scale earthworks that will help nature restore healthy habitats. Sculptural objects made of nutrient rich materials will amend soil deficiencies, as they’re absorbed by the landscape.
Goals and Community Impact: At face-value the amendment project is a beautification project, but it is also guerrilla gardening. The sculptural works exhibited will transform toxic ground into a healthier habitat, preparing the soil for anyone that would like to use it to grow food crops. The Amendment project’s goals are to create works that affect environmental change, to use art and exhibition to confront the degradation of urban land and community. To encourage the public to think critically about the environmental challenges facing our urban eco-systems and reinforce the connections between the environment and our daily lives.
