78th Street Studios
The former home of American Greetings’ design department has become one of the hottest encampments in the region. Art lovers from all around are drawn to this sprawling warehouse with its vast windows and brilliant light.
78th Street Studios has quickly become the largest art and design complex in Northeast Ohio, featuring over 170,000 square feet of design showcases, art galleries, artist and design studios, and creative spaces, all under one roof on four floors, with new spaces opening seemingly every month.
Every Third Friday from 5-9PM, the place overflows with one of Cleveland’s best-attended art walks, a multi-sensory maze with each venue throwing open their doors to the accompaniment of ambient music, fun food and pop-up vendors. The event attracts thousands of visitors and is spilling over to the restaurants, bars and boutiques of nearby Gordon Square.
In addition, the smARTspace at 78th, a funky but chic 6,000-square-foot multipurpose space in the heart of the building, is jamming with parties, benefits, weddings and special exhibits.
All venues in 78th Street Studios are open Fridays 11AM-4PM and every third Friday from 5-9PM.
