The Phone Gallery – Cleveland’s smallest gallery – annexed to the front of Russ’ Auto Care in the Waterloo Arts District. Originally conceived in 2013 by artist Ivana Medukic of ‘Project Pop-Up Galleries’ and freelance designer Ali Lukacsy, Phone Gallery demonstrates the transformation of an otherwise vacant and underutilized “space” – in this case, an abandoned phone booth – into an inventive place for art display. Until the Phone Gallery was transformed in summer 2013 by Ivana, Ali, and local handyman Doug Holmes, it was utility-less and phone-less. Now, Phone Gallery is always open thanks to an electrical source (light!) and its inherently public and highly visible location just west of E.156th Street on Waterloo Road.
DISCLAIMER: Phone Gallery is not liable for theft or damage. The renovation of the box is designed to be tamper-proof, however this is a public gallery that is “always open”. Subject matter must be suitable for public viewing. Waterloo Arts retains the right to reject any work due to subject matter or space restrictions. Work will not be returned and will become the property of Waterloo Arts at the end of the exhibition period.
