AIA Cincinnati hosts ArtPlace America exhibit 10 Sectors, 10 Solutions: Artists and Community Change
October 8 – November 23, 2019
October 1, 2019 – As Cincinnati welcomes the Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit, AIA Cincinnati hosts 10 Sectors, 10 Solutions: Artists and Community Change, an exhibit showcasing creative, interdisciplinary responses to challenges facing communities across the country.
“As AIA Cincinnati and its members work to promote the power of design in shaping our communities, we were thrilled to engage with the creative placemaking sector in hosting this exhibit,” said Allison McKenzie, AIA Cincinnati President.
The exhibit, produced by ArtPlace America, highlights ten projects from across the United States that focus on human-centered, contextual, adaptive solutions to strengthen communities.
The exhibit presents brief case-studies of each project, addressing issues from transportation infrastructure to affordable housing. In each situation, the collaboration between planning departments, community development organizations, architects, artists, musicians, and residents, is featured, along with the solutions found by these partnerships.
“By focusing on cross-sector synergies, the projects featured in the exhibit explore how communities can engage arts and cultural organizations in partnership with planning and design entities to develop innovative solutions,” says McKenzie.
ArtPlace defines creative placemaking as empowering residents, artists, and planners to creatively address local challenges and opportunities by developing sustainable, beneficial outcomes. At the Midwest summit, held in Cincinnati October 10 -12, participants will explore how supporting places with art and culture can help create thriving and sustainable communities around themes including health, placekeeping, inclusion, and climate change.
The exhibit will be on view on view October 8 through November 23 at the Cincinnati Center for Architecture + Design, 1114 Race Street, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11am to 2pm, with other days and times available by appointment (email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 513-421-4661 to schedule). In addition, the exhibit will be open to the public on Saturday, October 12, from 10am – 4pm as part of Doors Open and on Saturday, November 23, from noon – 4pm.
