Student Programming Committee

Student Activities are planned by the student body for the student body. A group of students sit on the Student Programming Committee to manage an activities budget and plan events that students want to experience.

New York Trip

Every year the Art Academy students and several teachers take a trip to New York city to explore the museums, urban culture and take a closer look at Contemporary Art. Faculty will create itineraries for the gallery and museum visits; students are encouraged to pick a faculty itinerary to follow for the day.

The AAC also offers a New York residency program to its students. For more information, click here.

smART series

This lunch-hour lecture series features entertaining one-hour talks by professionals from throughout Cincinnati’s art community—artists, designers, teachers, critics, you name it. There are generally three talks per semester.

Soccer at AAC

One of AAC’s sports clubs, the Stinks, plays indoor soccer against teams from other organizations in the local art community. It’s a co-ed team, and the competition is pretty lighthearted.

 Open Mic Night

Twice per semester, AAC students have the opportunity to show off their musical, lyrical, and poetic talents. Hosted in the Commons, the Open Mic Night offers the perfect venue for self-expression.

Final Fridays

The Art Academy galleries are part of the monthly Final Friday Art Walk in Over-the-Rhine. Galleries throughout the neighborhood stay open until 10 p.m. on the last Friday of each month. Final Friday receptions in the AAC galleries are open to the public and hosted by faculty and students.
