Situated on Lake Avenue in Bay Village is the amazing place known as Bay Arts – a mecca of art education, and a celebration of the arts on the west side of Cleveland.
Bay Arts is situated on the grounds of the Metroparks Huntington Reservation, a large tract of land that stretches from Lake Erie’s shore and famous Huntington Beach, to Wolf Road. From Beach to Deep Woodland, the reservation contains so many gems…
- The Huntington Playhouse – offering a schedule of productions, and something theatre for everyone
- Great Lakes Nature Center – animal sanctuary, bird rehabilitation, and all around nature education center
- The Beach – a large stretch of beach below the cliffs offers summer bathers and sun worshippers amazing opportunity
- BayArts – art education, galleries and a fabulous gift shop with hand made local art.
Annually BayArts brings 40-50 artists to a one day festival on the lawn of their building, the former gatekeeeper’s house for the Huntington Estate. Huntington was Rockefeller’s lesser known business partner at Standard Oil (Now owned by British Petroleum or BP). The grounds are landscaped beautifully, and the air is filled with wonderful music and the smells of good eats.
