Typical “welcome to the neighborhood” gifts can come in all shapes, sizes and forms – from a pie or plate of cookies to a fruit basket or even a small potted plant. In rare cases, it can also mean adorning the entry-level walls in a neighbor’s new office building with artwork, as in the case of the Art Academy of Cincinnati (AAC), who has done just that for new neighbor Cincinnati Center City Development Corp. (3CDC).
It was at this time last year (around March) that I took my first tour of the school. I had my mind set on going to Cincinnati State to be a firefighter, and nothing else was even an option. My mom and high school art teacher urged me to visit the school just to see if I’d interested. I came on a tour of the school and absolutely fell in love.
To say we have rad people that work at the Art Academy would be an understatement. Meet Galen Crawford, Director of Student Services and Human Extraordinaire.
Art Academy of Cincinnati will be hosted their 2nd Annual Art Auction on May 16th, 2015. Proceeds from this invitation only event will be used to benefit the students of the Art Academy.
