Green Cleveland, The Home House Project

Courtesy of Dru at TOI Studio, take note of an upcoming gallery show at the Cleveland Institute of Art Reinberger Galleries: Green Cleveland, The Home House Project. On November 3rd, a panel discussion, "Housing the Future: New Definitions of Affordability" and an opening reception in CIA’s main gallery launch the month-long exhibition of 100 award-winning designs for sustainable, affordable housing.

Some background on the Home House Project (from TOI Studio): “In 2003, the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) held a competition based upon affordability, design and sustainability in housing. The open competition drew 440 multi-national entries which were based on the typical layout of Habitat for Humanity’s three and four bedroom designs.” See Dru’s site to view CIA’s postcard advertising the show.

It’s curious that the show begins in a little more than a week, as there’s been no mention of its opening from area publications and newsletters or directly from the sponsoring organizations (EcoCity Cleveland, Cleveland Public Art, Parkworks, among others). Not to mention, area architecture organizations and institutions are not directly involved. Regardless, find an opportunity to visit University Circle for Green Cleveland and visit the Cleveland Museum of Art for Barcelona & Modernity: Picasso, Gaudi, Miro, Dali (October 15th – January 7th).
