This holiday season, FutureHeights partnered with art classes at Heights High and local property owner Jonathan Forman to decorate a vacant storefront in the Cedar Lee Business District. Students added holiday-themed scenes to the window of Forman's building at 2169 Lee Road.

"FutureHeights had partnered with several property owners and arts organizations to fill vacant storefronts with art and increase the vibrancy of the district during Heights Music Hop," said Deanna Bremer Fisher, executive director of FutureHeights. "This initiative seeks to do the same during the busy holiday shopping season."

The 775 square-foot space is located in a prime location between Heights Arts and Parnell's Pub in Forman's Cedar Lee Theatre Building.

"It is also our hope that the decorations will call attention to storefront's availability and help Jonathan find a permanent tennant for the space," said Bremer Fisher. "It would be an ideal location for a boutique or gallery that would appeal to theatergoers."
