Two Cleveland arts organizations will soon have more space to exhibit art.
The Sculpture Center is moving out of its longtime shared home with Artists Archives of the Western Reserve to another nearby building where it had additional gallery space, just across the parking lot and on Euclid Avenue.
The two organizations have shared a building on E. 123rd Street, tucked between Little Italy and Lake View Cemetery, since 1999. Artists Archives of the Western Reserve, or AAWR, will also expand its galleries with the extra room.
“A lot of this was prompted by the need for us to be in one building,” said Grace Chin, executive director of the Sculpture Center.
Previously, the Sculpture Center staff had to escort people from the main location to an additional gallery space in the other building.
“We can actually improve the visitor experience so that people will come to the Sculpture Center in one space,” she said.
The Sculpture Center’s operation will move entirely to 12210 Euclid Ave. by Sept. 1.
