Big changes at BAYarts

BAYarts' Fuller House gets a facelift.

Things have been busy in Huntington Reservation! After years of planning, construction of BAYarts' new auditorium has begun in anticipation of opening in Spring 2024. The same week brought cheers when a fresh coat of green paint on the exterior brought the iconic building to life and tied it to the other historic buildings on the campus. The auditorium will be a multi-use flex space for all new education and community programming.

Speaking of fresh paint, have you seen the Fuller House lately? Thanks to a generous donation from Bay Village residents Michael and Abby Tomasone of Southwest Companies Inc., the exterior of the over-130-year-old Victorian (which famously floated on a barge, but that's another story) is being repaired and given a long overdue facelift, just in time for holiday shopping and festivities. 

Meanwhile, Cleveland Metroparks re-paved and painted all the parking lots for your safety. All in one week.

But there's more to come: BAYarts will continue its capital campaign for the next phase of the former theater renovation: adding ADA elements inside and out, improvements to the back patio, and a stunning new entrance. The staff is busy planning new programming and getting ready for BAYarts' newest tradition: Holiday Extravaganza on Nov. 18. Visit for info on all of these projects.
