Cleveland's Premiere Mixer for Creators


All events are 18+ to enter or you must be

accompanied by an adult.


“GLO has been an integral part in building my confidence as a photographer. The Open Lens events make me feel like creativity isn’t just a concept, but a tangible sphere of energy that pulses and pushes and pulls me. The supportive group of artists makes me feel like I can be a part of magic making. It dares me to set aside the pressures of making ‘worthy’ art and to just play — to pick up my camera, approach a model, and see what happens.”


Photographer and Journalist, Laurie Hamame

In Cleveland, there’s somewhat a disconnect among artists and the culture. Glo helps bring many different talented artists together to share their craft with each other and express themselves.

Glo Cleveland is a place where people can innovate and create. It’s a way for artist to express themselves to the world, I think it’s a great thing especially for Cleveland to get our city out there!

Glo gives me a place to get away , a place to shut out the noise and create. Think of it as a creative vacation -

GLO is about supporting the Cleveland community on top of just Cleveland artists. GLO is bringing the community together one event at a time through various creative outlets. -
