Krylon + Hollywood Coming to Northside's Yard Sale



Via our other site: www.NorthsideYardSale.com

In an unexpected twist of events, The Northside Yard Sale & Art Market Team was contacted by Los Angeles-based television producer Amber Engelmann a few weeks ago and now we have something to talk about.

It turns out, the creators of Krylon Paint are sending a hollywood film crew up & down "The World's Longest Yard Sale" route to create fun, highly polished web episodes to show how their paints and products can transform yard sale finds into "new" items worth appreciating.

Long story short, the film crew was given the task to pick three locations — from Alabama to Michigan — and you guessed it
...Northside is one of the three!!

For these segments, the film crew is looking to capture all things great about Northside (and hopefully Cincinnati as a whole), so now we need your help. If you're a likable neighbor who has fun finds let us know! If you're a charismatic vendor hoping to be discovered and you haven't signed up to join us yet, please do!

But most importantly, if you're an awesome Northsider interested in possibly having your house, street or goods captured on film, please put your house on the map ...so we know how to find you! This is a one shot deal, so we want OUR neighborhood to sparkle ...because we can. :-)



Also, to local bloggers & DIYers:

If you're interested in being part of this experience, please let us know ASAP.

It'll be up to their team who they feature, but they're looking for extra bloggers, marketers, DIY-ers, fixer-uppers, etc. that they may be able to feature as part of the overall Northside experience.

Please shoot us an email if you're interested.

We already have over 50 vendors registered at the central location (with time and space remaining), so now we're looking for more awesome neighbors to put their houses on the map to welcome everyone to our great community.

Thanks in advance for helping us spread the word!

A Second Look For The First Time

If you’re not familiar with us, hello, we’re Professional Artistic Research Projects Incorporated. We’re a 501(c)3, not-for-profit organization based in Cincinnati, Ohio. The cool kids, and everyone else for that matter, call us PAR-Projects — pronounced / pär ˈpräjˌekts /  — and we’ve been creating experimental art experiences throughout Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky since 2010. 
If you're already familiar with PAR-, hello again! New to us or not, we hope you'll lend us a few moments to get through this post. Our goal is simple: We'd like to get reacquainted. A lot is going on with our growing organization so, as Executive Director, there's no better time to reintroduce ourselves. And if all goes well, this will become an annual address — a progress report of sorts.
Back to the basics though: Our mission is to help empower community in the arts. As educators, we provide weekend workshops & multi-week classes, related to career development & skills training. A…

Introducing Applied Arts Education

So "more" arts education, huh?
This is a question we field from time to time when some learn we’re rolling out applied arts educational programming at PAR-Projects. 

What we’re up to is not just “more” arts education; but if it were, just more arts education would be great. It's indeed needed ...throughout the city ...throughout the country for that matter. Few would argue we have an abundance of creative thinkers and creative problem solvers.
Original & creative thought is simply becoming harder to find, especially outside of affluent communities.
That said, and like most things we do, PAR- Education is a little different from the norm. Our biggest goal is to create and support career pathways in the visual arts. Therefore, instead of teaching more traditional classes (e.g. painting, drawing, and crafts), we’re focussing on applied arts education. And by definition, “applied arts are arts in which objects are designed or created in order to be used rather than simply to…
