Rainey @ clark-fulton

Providing excellent and accessible arts education to youth on Cleveland’s west side


A Rainey in every neighborhood of Cleveland is a whisper, a dream, a seed planted when you visit Rainey Institute. When summer campers are gathered singing Rainey Songs; when students are picking up an instrument and learning to play with a mentor; and when students are sculpting, animating, stepping, pirouetting, and reciting lines of poetry, you imagine what this dream would mean if every child in Cleveland had access to it.

After more than 100 years in Hough, and with off-site programs located in schools and recreation centers throughout Cleveland, Rainey Institute has opened a second location on Cleveland’s west side in the Clark-Fulton neighborhood. Our new space at the Pivot Center for Art, Dance, and Expression allows Rainey to expand our program offerings on the west side, form deeper partnerships with schools and the community, and enrich the lives of even more Cleveland youth through engagement and education in the visual and performing arts.

In Summer 2023, we held our very first full program at our Pivot Center site, the Musical Motion Picture Camp. In the fall, we are excited to offer more school-day, after-school, and Saturday programs such as our El Sistema orchestral program, Preschool Arts, and more.
