Organizer 78th Street Studios

Organizer of 78th Street Studios December THIRD FRIDAY Art Walk

Every THIRD FRIDAY of the month from 5 - 9 pm, over 60 creative businesses inside 78th Street Studios open up at the same time to present compelling visual exhibits, ambient music, delicious cuisine, and pop-up vendors. Named Cleveland's Best Arts Event by Scene Magazine and Best of Yelp Cleveland, THIRD FRIDAYS is a multisensory art experience like nothing else in this region. With four different floors of eclectic architecture and visual displays, 78th Street Studios is a retail adventure that allows the public to interact with Cleveland's living artists and producers to discover authentic art, furniture, music, and cuisine made in this region.

THIRD FRIDAYS launched in the early 2000s as a quarterly event among a handful of pioneering gallerists and art lovers, pulling in a few hundred people. By the end of 2013, this cultural collaboration grew to include over 80 gallerists, artists, and designers working together to attract 1500 visitors to the building each month. Today, THIRD FRIDAYS has expanded into a district-wide event to include promotions and dining specials in the restaurants, bars, and boutiques of the Gordon Square Arts District. When this property isn’t playing host to its own event, multiple spaces throughout the building are being rented to corporations, organizations, and individuals for their own private functions, making the industrial ambiance of 78th Street Studios a year-round attraction.

Join us during our THIRD FRIDAY art walk and find out why we're known as the 'Best Arts Event' in Cleveland!
