More to come...

We've been on a brief hiatus, but we guarantee more great things are on the way please be patient as we begin to rebuild the momentum.

Also, and more importantly, the striking photo you see above was taken by Scott Beseler at our Symphonic Stylings event this past June. The image depicts one of the many models from the event, draped in colorful wears by Dana Greaves of ARTAYA, with concert:nova (the string quartet) playing beautifully in the background. Please find the rest of that gallery HERE.

Thanks again to all who enjoyed the show ...and most importantly, thanks again to all of the behind the scenes volunteers and showmen who helped make this one of a kind experience happen. And don't worry, we'll be in touch.

Cheers for now,

Local Exposure: Northside

Above, you'll find an audio program by Local Exposure (of WVXU) we were recently featured in. The segment covers a lot of the mainstays of Northside, Cincinnati (i.e. Shake-It-Records), so we're honored that they led the segment with our project. You can subscribe to their podcast over at:

Below, you'll also find a link to our first TV-spot that highlighted The Factory Square Fine Arts Festival back in October. It's just a brief mention, but again, we're grateful to everyone who's helping us in-front and behind the scenes.


Beyond these two clips, we're continuing to update our press page, so we invite you to take a look at some of the new additions.

Thanks again,

As January comes to a close...

We'd more than likely be upset with ourselves if we ended up not posting anything this month. So, without further ado, "Happy New Year!" ...sorry we almost forgot.

Still, we wanted to let you know that the planning of our 2012 season is well under way! For starters, we've been invited to participate in this year's FOTOFOCUS exhibition (details to the right). We've also been coordinating some pop-up exhibitions in new neighborhoods and putting together a major interdisciplinary art event for late spring (details launching soon). And to keep the ball rolling, we recently met with a lot of the city's art centers and plan to start working on our Driven 31 series in the next month or two.

Our major capital campaign to build an Art & Education Center will be launching soon as well. So, feel free to link to our Building Plans page or for details on the structure ...if you're unfamiliar with our design.

So, while all of that is being finalized, we'd like to, AGAIN, thank everyone who made 2011 such a memorable year for us. The amount of community and media support has been greatly appreciated. And as we continue to update our press postings, we'd like to leave you with some links that we've found:

And finally, if you've been keeping up with this website recently, you've probably noticed things are beginning to change, so we appreciate your patience if you've caught us on one of our testing days this month. We're working to bring you a nice, cohesive site, so please bear with us ...and feel free to follow our movements on your own or via one of the tools in the far right column (towards the bottom).

Thanks again for everything,
