Humble Monk x PAR-Projects

We wanted to take the opportunity to highlight the opening of our friends Paul and Mike Kemp's new brewery in Northside - Humble Monk. 

Humble Monk Brewing Company is a family operated craft brewery located at 1641 Blue Rock St.  A large portion of the brewery equipment has been re-purposed from food grade equipment and the taproom is decorated with rich dark wood, up-cycled spool tables, warm light and plenty of board games.


The environment is family friendly and will surely become a Northside staple.  Mike, the brew master, has been home brewing for 30+ years and plans to brew a large variety of Belgian Style beers.  Paul, Mike's son, helps run the taproom and administration side of the brewery.


Sounds great, right?

If so, you can visit the Taproom on Saturday, April 13th
 for The Humble Hop Print Shop fundraiser for PAR-Projects.

The Humble Monk parking lot will be transformed into a beer garden with music and tacos by Taco Oso.  Inside, team PAR will be facilitating a Free printmaking activity or you can play board games or try your luck with the raffle prizes. A portion of beer sales for the evening benefit PAR-Projects and our programming including our education classes at Kennedy Heights Arts Center.

Humble Monk is also open regularly, Thursday - Sunday. 
Follow them at:  Humble Monk Facebook or Humble Monk Instagram

Our collaborations with Humble Monk will continue.  Watch for more information about the 2019 Northside Summer Market - Dawn and Dusk.

A Humble Community Festival | Northside Summer Market | NSM019

Every year, a month after what is arguably Cincinnati's most creative few days of the summer — Northside's 4th of July Parade and Rock & Roll Festival — a humble neighborhood celebration takes place to invite everyone back into our community.

This event is Northside Summer Market — a community-wide yard sale with free arts & music programming. And on Saturday, August 3rd, we're doing it again!
As always, a day or two before the event, we'll release a printed and online map of all of our neighbors who have registered their houses' yard sales. But if you just want to visit Northside and go for it, two good starting places are the Yard Sale's Central Location at CAIN (4230 Hamilton Ave.) and our art-infused beer garden at Humble Monk Brewery (1641 Blue Rock St.).  This year, to help beat the heat, CAIN will be hosting a Cool Down Corner where festival patrons can enjoy grilled entrees, cold drinks, fresh fruit, FREE popsicles, kid's activities and a boo…

2018? Let’s try that again!..

Much like our Happy Winter video embedded above and/or Linked HERE , we’re ready to repeat.

When looking over notes and reviewing the ups & downs of 2018, they read a bit differently than years past. Though rocky at times, we’ve found a formula that pushes us as an organization and now have a practice round under our belt. The tweaking process is a go!

Two thousand eighteen was a change of pace. Personally speaking,  YeAr ONe as a parent was officially under way. “Yay Waylan!!” But in the same breath, Team PAR- was gellin’ and able to launch two new initiatives — an applied arts education program in Kennedy Heights and new strategies to help fund local artists, starting in Northside. The boat was rocked, construction milestones were reached at Headquarters, and our organization as a whole continued to mature. Memorable times!

Though we only hosted two full exhibitions last year, both were rather impressive. Christian Benefiel thrilled us all with This Syst…

Installation Art 101

The Nook at PAR-Projects is an installation art gallery. But what does this mean?
Installation art is a medium within the field of visual art that relies on the concept of site-specificity. Essentially, each creation is designed to transform the perception of the space.  For perspective, other mediums that also rely on the concept of site-specificity including  public art, land art and intervention art.  While the boundaries of all these overlap, installation art is usually applied to indoor spaces.
Site-specific installations can incorporate a range of new and old media to transform an interior space.  Often sculpture is used within installations.  And with the advent of new technologies like video, sound, virtual reality, etc., artists have more resources than ever before to transform spaces for an interactive art experience. 
As Wikipedia defines it, "Installation art operates fully within the realm of sensory perception, in a sense 'installing' the viewer into an art…
