150: Block Party

May 3, 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Celebrate the Art Academy’s 150th Anniversary

The Art Academy is celebrating its 150th Anniversary by celebrating its neighborhood, Over-the-Rhine. This will be free and open to the public.

Due to the help of a Catalyzing Impact Grant from ArtsWave, the Art Academy will have the first modular art pod exhibit in Cincinnati.

30 local artists, institutions, arts organizations, and alumni will create art pod structures. The structures will be strung together to create an interactive exhibit housed within 8,000 sq. ft. college’s campus.

In addition, the Art Academy will block off Jackson Street to have an encompassing block party. The party will include: live music, food and drink vendors, live painting, and much more.

ArtWorks, Agar Design, and others will be partnering with the Art Academy to make this a special event for everyone in the neighborhood.

More details to come.
