In an attempt to incorporate art with the surrounding area, Rooms to Let has started an adaptive new type of gallery display which places art installations in various abandoned homes, empty lots, and even properties that have been deemed unsafe to enter.

Based out of Columbus, Ohio, Rooms to Let was founded in 2010 by Melissa Vogley Woods, in an attempt to provide artists with diverse environments to display their exhibits through blending their art with houses or vacant lots environments.

If an artist has an idea, they can propose it to Rooms to Let, in order to gain approval for their exhibition, which can be anything from a site specific performance art piece to a visual science project. As they say, the sky is the limit!
