For the past couple of summers, the Cleveland Museum of Art has hosted Ohio City Stages, a weekly summer block party that takes place in front of the Transformer Station during the month of July.

Acts slated to play this summer include the following: steel string bachata icon Joan Soriano (July 5), a guy who plays a genre of Dominican music that draws upon influences from Africa, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean; Totó la Momposina (July 12), a cumbia group that recently received the WOMEX Lifetime Achievement Award and the Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award; El Septeto Santiaguero (July 19), a Latin band that has performed in more than 30 countries; and Mokoomba (July 26), a Zimbabwe band that blends traditional Tonga and Luvale rhythms with funk, ska and soukous.

The concerts take place at 7:30 p.m., and admission is free. Vendors will be hand to sell food and drinks as well.

In addition, Studio Go, the CMA’s mobile art studio, will offer hands-on art-making activities, pop-up drawing classes and other “family-oriented” art projects.
