About the Work

ROCK BOX was a series of interactive permanent outdoor installations along East 9th Street (also known as Rock and Roll Boulevard), consisting of multiple clusters of custom speakers. Designed by Cleveland Institute of Art graduate Mark Reigelman II, ROCK BOX extended the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum experience into downtown Cleveland and enlivened the pedestrian experience. Recognizing the Rock Hall’s 300+ inductees, the installation honored each induction class with engraved name plates on the speakers. Like church bells, the boxes will also project sound riffs from inductees throughout the day – infusing music into the public realm and celebrating Cleveland’s rich Rock and Roll history.

LAND studio was engaged by Destination Cleveland and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame + Museum to develop a project that would connect the Rock Hall with other activity in downtown Cleveland by integrating a taste of Rock and Roll into major pedestrian corridors. Guided by feedback from local stakeholders and design and music specialists, artist Mark Reigelman II and his ROCK BOX concept was selected from a pool of national and international talent.
