The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Destination Cleveland and LAND studio have announced details regarding ROCK BOX, a permanent outdoor installation that will pay tribute to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees. The project involves placing multiple clusters of custom speakers throughout downtown Cleveland. Conceived by Cleveland Institute of Art graduate Mark Reigelman, ROCK BOX aims to “combine visual and auditory experiences in a series of compositions” along East 9th Street.
An evolution of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Walk of Fame, ROCK BOX has a looming deadline as the Rock Hall hopes to have it installed in time for the Republican National Convention next summer. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees will be represented in the project; new inductees’ names will be engraved as they are enshrined.
“This is an incredible opportunity to engage with visitors and residents and expand Cleveland’s Rock and Roll attitude into Downtown,” says Greg Harris, president and CEO, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in a press release. “The ROCK BOX project is a creative and vibrant piece of visual art that will leave no reservation that Cleveland is the center of the rock universe.”
Destination Cleveland will help fund the installation.
