Vista Hunt in Downtown Cleveland
City Beautiful, Cleveland Restoration Society, and the Cleveland Young Professional Senate are coming together this Saturday, April 27 to hold a "Vista Hunt". Meet at 11:00 a.m. at City Beautiful's studio in the 5th Street Arcades, 530 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland. Then get out with your smartphone and explore our city.
You will be given an introduction to what urban vistas and viewsheds are, then you can go out with fresh eyes to see downtown Cleveland firsthand and capture its vistas with your phone. Email your pictures back to the City Beautiful studio, where volunteers will be printing them out and pinning them up on the wall next to a map of downtown Cleveland. Return to the studio so that you can see the compilation of the entire group's efforts.
The theme of this hunt is "It's all about the spaces in between!" As vista hunters spread out downtown, they are encouraged to check out the public spaces - the spaces between the buildings - and note how they are just as important as the buildings themselves.
