It all started in 2013 when Loren Naji applied for a grant through Northeast Shores Development Corporation. His mission was to rehabilitate an old bungalow into something new, exciting, and unusual. From his home base on West 25th Street, Loren launched Satellite Gallery into orbit, with the hopes that it will explore and discover the outer reaches of the Cleveland art scene.
Satellite Gallery is engineered to display only installation art, utilizing the array of small rooms and cubby holes located within the diminutive bungalow. The goal of Satellite Gallery is to colonize the deserted Collinwood neighborhood, bringing explorers to this far reached corner of Cleveland.
As has occurred in Ohio City, Naji feels that art is what invigorates growth and prosperity in neighborhoods, making them great places for the community to thrive. In addition to this, Naji will be purchasing a shuttle bus and creating “The Intergallactic East to West Astronaut/Art Transport System”, a rolling motorized art gallery that will take art viewers around Cleveland on art event nights! This is another means for Naji to encourage and unite the Cleveland art world!
