About Bad Art Night

The idea was sparked when Matthew Dayler and Pam Kravetz, founders of Bad Art Night, were forced to reschedule the formerly-planned social experience to fit a time of national quarantine.

“We wanted to move forward with this project to see how people are being creative and staying inspired during these unprecedented times. I feel that it is important for others to share what is inspiring them even when we are alone,” said Matthew Dayler, Associate Professor at the Art Academy of Cincinnati.

“Creating art together, even when apart!!! Inspiring each other and being inspired by the amazing kindness and resilience of our city (Cincinnati, NKY and beyond) is why we just have to move forward with Bad Art Night!!! I can’t wait to see all the crazy amazing inspiring art, film, songs and silliness that are created!!!” said Pam Kravetz, local artist and educator.
