Description:

With funding support and collaboration from Destination Cleveland, the city's Convention and Visitor's bureau, and The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, ROCK BOX was developed to enliven the spaces in between visitor destinations in downtown Cleveland. The Rock Hall is one of Northeast Ohio’s most visited institutions yet lacks a clear connection with other areas downtown. LAND studio, a Cleveland nonprofit focused on public spaces, was engaged to facilitate the creation of public art that celebrates Cleveland’s place in music history while activating downtown spaces. Through an international selection process, New York artist Mark Reigelman was selected and developed a series of permanent outdoor installations along East 9th Street, consisting of clusters of custom speakers. Like church bells, the boxes project sound at increments throughout the day, infusing inductee music clips into the routine of more than 100,000 workers and residents in the city's business center.
